Passing of Character : Bishop Minnick asked Watson to respond to the 
question, "Are all District Superintendents blameless in their life and 
ministry?" He responded affirmatively. There was nothing against them. The 
Conference agreed. Bishop Minnick called the District Superintendents to 
the front and addressed them with the question, "Are all the ministerial 
members of the North Carolina Annual Conference blameless in their life and 
character?" The character and administration of ministers within each 
district was recommended by each superintendent with affirmation for all.

of the Raleigh Area, called to order the North Carolina Conference of the 

151 



Southeastern Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church, meeting in full 
session at Methodist College in Fayetteville, North Carolina, at 3:00 p.m. 
The Bishop called upon Dr. M. Elton Hendricks, President of Methodist 
College, to bring greetings. 

Greetings : Dr. Hendricks brought gracious words of welcome to the 
meeting of the North Carolina Annual Conference which is always such a 
delight to entertain. Hendricks spoke on behalf of the staff and trustees 
of the college and those who had worked such long hours to do everything 
possible to make this Conference an effective and pleasurable experience. 
Dr. Hendricks called attention to the yellow name tags that would identify 
staff members of the college and the Conference who would assist in 
answering questions and solving problems. He encouraged members of the 
Conference to take adavantage of their services. Hendricks introduced Bill 
Lowdermilk, Vice President of the College, who received a round of applause 
in response to Dr. Hendricks' remarks regarding how much work Bill 
Lowdermilk and his immediate staff had put into this Conference. 

Introduction : Bishop Minnick presented the Honorable J. William 
Hurley, Mayor of the City of Fayet teville , who came to bring greetings. 

Greetings : Mayor Hurley brought greetings on behalf of the city and 
welcomed the Conference members back to Fayetteville and to Methodist 
College. He expressed his appreciation for Dr. Hendricks and what he was 
meaning to the college and to the City of Fayetteville. Mayor Hurley spoke 
of some of the changes in Fayetteville including the face-lifting of the 
500 block of Hay street, the building of a new medical complex, and a new 
library. Mayor Hurley announced that Fayetteville was chosen an 

Ail-American city, one of the eight in the United States this year, and in 
response received a round of applause from the Conference. Hurley 

concluded by urging Methodists to get behind the anti-pornography and 
obscenity laws that are proposed before the legislature and take an active 
role in writing their representatives and taking action, that Methodism 
might have a role in making more stringent the very open pornography laws 
in North Carolina. 

Introduction : Bishop Minnick introduced James Bailey, Superintendent 
of the Wilmington District, to bring greetings from the host district for 
Conference this year. 

Greetings : James Bailey brought greetings from all the churches and 
ministers of the Wilmington District and expressed appreciation for all who 
had taken part in making preparations. 

Introduction : The Bishop called upon Joseph Bethea and James Coile 
for expressions and motions. 

Motion : James Coile moved "that Joseph Bethea serve as secretary 
pro-tern for this Annual Conference". It was adopted. Expressions of 

sadness for the recent hospitalization of Secretary Ted Wilson for by-pass 
surgery were given. 

Rules of Order and Procedure : James Coile read the necessary rules of 
the organization of the Conference. 

Amendment : Coile moved that Paragraph 7, c, on page 1-8 of THE 
CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS, AND REPORTS 1985, be amended to read 
as follows: 

"IV. 7. c. There shall be an Entertainment Committee composed of three 
ministers and three laypersons. The Committee shall be elected at the 
first session of the Annual Conference in the quadrennium. The Committee 
shall receive invitations and recommend to the Annual Conference the place 
and methoa of entertaining the Annual Conference. A local church or other 
institution may host the Annual Conference upon acceptance of the 
invitation by the Annual Conference. 

11) When no invitation has come from a local church or other 
institution, the Annual Conference will be held at Methodist College 
and North Carolina Wesleyan College on alternating years (held at 
Methodist College until Wesleyan has an auditorium). 

(2) The Cabinet will designate a district each year on a rotating 
basis as the host district (when the Conference is held at Methodist 

152 



College and NC Wesleyan College) which will be responsible for ushers, 
flowers, and other related items of hospitality." 

In Section I, page 9, change the last two sentences of VI, 2, to read: 
"No resolutions shall be distributed later than the second night of the 
Annual Conference. None shall be considered later than the third night of 
the Conference." IX, 3, shall be amended to read as follows, "A district 
conference shall be held annually in each district. " 

James Coile moved adoption of the Rules of the Annual Conference with 
those changes. His motion passed. 

Motion : Robert Pullman moved "that the Rules of Order and Procedure 
for the North Carolina Annual Conference be amended as follows: Under IV - 
Conference Structure, a number 8 be added. It shall read: 

IV., 8, "No person may serve on more than one Board of Trustees of an 
institution to which Trustees are elected by the Conference." This 
rule will become effective at the 1986 Session of the North Carolina 
Annual Conference. 

The motion was seconded. Robert Pullman spoke for the motion. Ernest 
Porter rose for a point of information. He wondered if this would take the 
ex-officio members off boards of trustees that had people on them by virtue 
of other offices. 

Charles Smith brought a point of question. Coile expressed the 

feeling that it was a restrictive rule, and, if adopted, would hinder the 
choices of boards of trustees in their selection of candidates. Coile 

suggested that the ballot be exercised rather than a restrictive rule. 

A vote was taken and Bishop Minnick ruled the motion passed unless 
someone asXed for a count vote. A count vote was requested. The Bishop 

requested the tellers to come forward and asked the chief teller to give 
instructions. Both clergy and laity would vote, but the clergy tellers 
would do the counting. A count vote supported the Pullman motion by a 337 
to 297 vote. 

Organization of the Conference : Joseph B. Bethea requested that the 
items of organization be voted upon as a body and read the following 
motions: 

"I move that the registration kept by the registrars at the 
registration tables be designated and declared the official roll of the 
Conference. 

I move that the bar of the Conference be the main floor and the stage 
of Reeves Auditorium. 

I move that the program as contained in THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, 
RECOMMENDATIONS, AND REPORTS 198 5 (as amended from time to time by the 
chair) be the official program of the Conference. 

I move that the materials printed and published in "Saddle Bag" be 
declared 'presented to the Conference' when distributed to the members, to 
satisfy Section VI, Paragragh 2, of the rules of the Conference. 

I move that persons appearing on the program of the Conference be 
granted the privilege of the floor. 

I move that the committees and persons printed on pages 2, 3, and 4 of 
Section I of the program book be elected." 

Bethea 's motions were before the house and the motions were adopted. 

Special Recognition : Bishop Minnick asked Brother Adrian Brown, a 
member of the Conference, 93 years of age, to appear before the Conference. 
He was greeted with a round of appreciative applause. 

Motion : Norwood Jones moved "that the Board of Pensions Report, 
scheduled for the next day, be set for 11:00 o'clock instead of 11:30 
because of needed extra time." It was so ordered. 

Committee on Nominations : Ernest Porter presented the Nominations of 

15 3 



Members for the Boards, Commissions, and Committees 1984-1988, Revisions 
for 1985-1986. They were laid on the table until the next day. 

Presentation of Proposed Constitutional Amendments : Bishop Minnick 

asked Joseph Bethea to present the amendments appearing on Section II, page 
38 of THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS, AND REPORTS 1985. Bethea 

read the constitutional amendments proposed to the 1984 session of the 
General Conference which require a two-thirds vote of the Annual 
Conferences. These were: 1984-25, 1984-26, and 1984-27. (For complete 

text of the report, see JOURNAL, Section V.) The first two amendments deal 
strictly with legal matters that are important to the Council on Finance 
and Administration. The third amendment gives permission to the diaconal 
ministers to be voting members of the Annual Conference. Bishop Minnick 

requested that they be reflected upon by members of the Conference for 
voting upon at a later time. 

Introduction : Bishop Minnick presented Cabinet President, J. Thomas 
Smith, to make a report in lieu of Vernon Tyson who had been kept out of 
town this afternoon by pressing business. Smith rose to a point of high 
personal privilege not only to welcome Bishop Minnick officially to the 
episcopal residence and to the Conference but also to express pleasure over 
having a woman in the episcopal residence. Wallace Kirby and his wife 
escorted Mrs. Minnick to the stage and pinned on a corsage. The Conference 
gave a round of applause. Mrs. Minnick took the podium and gave gracious 
thanks for the welcome and for the opportunity to be a part of the North 
Carolina Annual Conference. 

Composite Report of the District Superintendents : Smith continued in 
his office as president of the cabinet by bringing the composite report of 
the District Superintendents for the past year in review. First, he 

extolled the leadership the Conference has in Bishop Minnick and then in 
the strength of the laity. (For complete text of the report, see JOURNAL, 
Section V.) Smith presented the summary of the report most eloquently and 
Bishop Minnick received it with appreciation. 

Introduction : Bishop Minnick presented J. Allen Norris, Jr., 

Conference Lay Leader. 

Report of the Laity : Norris expressed his appreciation for Ed Hammond 
and his work as Associate Conference Lay Leader and noted the invaluable 
help that he had received. Norris referred to the recent celebration of 
the Bicentennial of Methodism and the return to roots of the faith and the 
hope that this had brought a new day and a new revival in our charge and 
challenge to double our membership within a short time span which will 
require commitment, diligence and effort. (For complete text of the 

report, see JOURNAL, Section V.) Dr. Norris's report was received with 
great appreciation. 

Report of United Methodist Women : Mrs. Margaret Saunders brought the 
report for United Methodist Women of the North Carolina Annual Conference. 
She alluded not only to the 200 years of Methodism but also to the 100 
years of women united for mission. She spoke of the leadership and vision 
that had been an enormous contribution to the church through its emphasis 
on all fields of mission, training, and a sense of spiritual wholeness and 
togetherness within the church. She referred to the coming Conference 
theme - a challenging one - "To Love is to Risk..." (For complete text of 
the report, see JOURNAL, Section V.) 

Report of United Methodist Men : Charles Sauls brought the report for 
United Methodist Men. (For complete text of the report, see JOURNAL, 
Section V.J Sauls indicated that the Methodist Men's organization was not 
as old as that of the women, but he emphasized that it was one of the 
fastest growing segments of the supportive lay elements of the church. He 
spoke of some of the projects of United Methodist Men and of the fact that 
42 percent of the churches in the North Carolina Conference have units of 
Methodist Men fellowships. He stated that our Conference ranked fifth in 
the nation of those with active charters for Methodist Men's groups. 

Report of United Methodist Youth : Steve Hutch ins brought the report 
and indicated that giving to the United Methodist Youth Fund by youth of 
the North Carolina Conference was fourth in the nation. Hutchins spoke of 
a number of other accomplishments and of goals that were being set. (For 

complete text of the report, see JOURNAL, Section V.) 

15 4 



Bishop Minnick expressed the feeling that the reports of the laity had 
been received with enthusiasm and asked for their approval. The Conference 
so approved. 

Report of the Conference Statistician ; D. D. Traynham brought the 
report of the Conference Statistician. (For complete text of the report/ 
see JOURNAL./ Section V.) Traynham referred to pages 39-41 of THE 

CONFERENCE PROGRAMS/ RECOMMENDATIONS, AND REPORTS 1985/ emphasizing the 
study of changes between 1983 and 1984. Traynham indicated that nearly 51 
percent was devoted to benevolences paid directly by the local church and 
only 12 percent was sent outside the Conference. He encouraged everyone to 
study the statistics. 

Council on Finance and Administration ; Bishop Minnick presented 

Randolph Few to bring the report. Section I on page III-2 of THE 

CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS, AND REPORTS 1985, was presented for 
information. Under II, Few moved adoption of 1 through 10 with the 
addition of North Carolina Council of Churches under Item 4. 

Motion ; Ernest Porter moved "under Item 10 delete: 'will be reported 
in whole or in summary form in the Conference JOURNAL, unless exempted by 
CFA and'; and delete: 'CFA upon recommendation. ' " 

Porter spoke to his motion. He felt that a detailed audit would 
increase the size of the JOURNAL by three times and felt that it would be 
non-productive in that this audit was available in the treasurer's office 
to anyone who wanted to read it. The amendment was accepted by Few for the 
Council on Finance and Administration. Section II was adopted as amended. 

Section III, Approval to Solicit Funds, - Items 1 through 6 were 
presented and adopted. 

Sections IV and V were presented for information. Few recognized Sam 
Dixon to present Section V which concerned a study of the District 
Superintendent's salary ordered last year. He indicated that this was not 
a matter of information but a report. Dixon explained the all-encompassing 
study and exactly how it was made. The feeling and concern was that the 
basis for determining the district superintendent's salary did not reflect 
a broad cross section of the Annual Conference. Therefore, the proposal in 
Section V was to make the district superintendent's salary for 1986 and 
subsequent years the same as the average percentage change in salary/ 
including salary, travel, and utilities for that year/ for all full-time 
pastors serving in local charges in the North Carolina Conference. Dixon 

placed it before the Conference for discussion. Bishop Minnick asked for 
response and it was approved and adopted. 

Report of the Board of Diaconal Ministry ; Phyllis Gantz brought the 
report for the Board and referred to Section II, pages 26 and 27 of THE 
CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS, AND REPORTS 1985. She summarized the 
report and introduced the incoming Diaconal Ministers. Bishop Minnick 

recognized Kimberly Perdue and presented her with a certificate recognizing 
her move into our North Carolina Conference as a Director of Christian 
Education. 

Return to the Report of the Board of Ordained Ministry ; Bishop 

Minnick asked Langill Watson to present the ministers being received into 
Full Connection in the Annual Conference. Watson presented these to the 
full conference and Bishop Minnick read them the historic questions so they 
might answer them, and then the ordained ministers would be invited to 
approve them. After giving positive answers to the questions, they were 
unanimously received into full membership in the North Carolina Conference. 

Report of the Methodist Board of Publication , Inc. : Bishop Minnick 

called on C. Alison Simonton to bring the report. He referred to Section 
IV, pages 29 and 30 of THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS, AND 
REPORTS 1985. (For complete text of the report, see JOURNAL, Section V.) 
Simonton urged greater efforts toward more subscriptions, brought greetings 
from the staff of the "Advocate "and called attention to the recommendations 
that would be presented later through Conference Council on Ministries 
reports. 

Report from Hinton Rural Life Center : Clay Smith brought the report. 
(For complete text of the report, see JOURNAL, Section V.) Smith 

particularly applauded the increased emphasis on helping churches of small 

155 



membership in growth and in ministry. 

Announcements ; Joseph Bethea, Secretary Pro-tern, made announcements. 
James Bailey urged people to attend the Duke banquet and gave them a second 
chance to make reservations, if they had not done so. The announcement was 
made that Bishop Colaw was not present yet, and that, while the aircraft he 
was supposed to be on had landed, they had not been able to ascertain 
whether he was aboard or was enroute for his presentation tonight. 
Telegrams were read from other conferences meeting at the same time and it 
was moved that we reciprocate. 

Hymn : Bishop Ninnick asked that the Conference sing stanzas 1 and 4 
of Hymn 124, "Ask Ye What Great Thing I Know". The Conference joined in 
doing this. 

Benediction : Joseph Bethea gave the benediction. 

The Conference was adjourned at 5:15 p.m. , to reassemble at 7:30 p.m. 
for the Service of Worship for Ordination and Consecration. 

Postlude: The organist played as a postlude, "Rondeau" by Jean Joseph 
Mouret. 

FIRST DAY, EVENING SESSION, Monday, June 3, 1985

held. Bishop C. P. Minnick, Jr., led the service and Bishop Emerson S. 
Colaw was the preacher. 

Phyllis Gantz presented one candidate for consecration as a diaconal 
minister. H. Langill Watson presented the deacons and elders for 

ordination. 

Organist was Judy Aycock and special music was by the chancel choir of 
Haymount Church, Fayetteville, under the direction of Tony Argo. (For a 

synopsis of the entire service see "A Service of Worship for Ordination and 
Consecration 1985". ) 

SECOND DAY, MORNING SESSION, Tuesday, June 4, 1985 

Holy Communion : The Sacrament of Holy Communion was celebrated at 
Hensdale Chapel at 7:30 a.m., under the direction of the Board of Worship. 

Prelude : The organist for the morning was David M. Hines, Diaconal 
Minister of Music, Wesley Memorial Church, Wilmington. He played "In Thee 
is Joy" by J . S. Bach. 

Bible Study : Bishop Minnick announced he was wired for sound so he 
could give a roving Bible Study in a unique style. He called for the 

singing of Hymn 149, "I Love to Tell the Story". It was done. After the 
hymn was sung, Bishop Minnick led in prayer and then expressed appreciation 
for the overwhelming crowd that completely filled Reeves Auditorium. 
Minnick spoke of the Bible as a dynamic personal living experience and said 
he wanted to share with the members of the Conference portions that made 
his faith grow. He explained that he wanted the Conference to understand 
his approach - which was to be considered as one of many - that would give 
some insight into his theological and deep appreciation of the Scriptures. 
He spoke of his belief in the Bible as the special Word of God. 

The Bishop said, "I believe the Bible is the Word of God, but the 
Bible has been used to support many strange and contradictory beliefs... 
This does not mean that the words of the Biblical text are the Word of 
God... There is a Word behind these words... I feel called to live by the 
faith of the scripture but not always by the application which the Biblical 
people made of that fai":h..." 

The Bishop continued: "The Bible is (1) ancient, (2) oriental (3) 
literature (4) through which God has confronted his people with the Word of 
God. ..Thus, every text has four contexts: (1) historical, (2) cultural, 
(3) literary, and (4) theological." 

Bishop Minnick emphasized that divergent pieces of Scripture could be 

156 



used to prove various things. He gave several humorous illustrations and 
then exhorted the congregation to utilize the Bible as a total Word of God 
which must be studied and understood and practiced on a personal level with 
responsibility. Minnick stated that we should live by the faith of the 
Scriptures/ not necessarily by the application that the Biblical community 
made in a given day. Still he emphasized that behind all the laws is God's 
atiirmation of life and his presence as the Lord of life. Bishop Minnick 
emphasized the expansi veness of the Bible as it opened up issues rather 
than closed them. It allows the minds of God's children to go on in their 
understanding and grow. The Bible is ancient oriental literature, the Word 
of God in which God has attempted to confront his people. Bishop Minnick 
said this would be his thesis in further presentations during these morning 
Bible studies. He then spoke briefly to the first two of the four items of 
his thesis. 

Minnick spoke to John 21 and the various meanings of love as an 
example of the same word meaning different things in the ancient language. 
He spoKe to the cosmology of the Bible and the fact that it was not pure 
science, but a theology of science. While the Bible is filled with 

history, one must also view it as a theology of history. Bishop Minnick 

announced he would address the Bible as literature in a successive session 
and concluded his study. The study was received with applause and 

appreciation. 

Brief Recess ; There was a brief recess following the Bible Study. 

Call to Order ; Bishop Minnick called the Conference into business 
session and called upon Charles Mercer to present a matter that needed to 
be presented at this time. Mercer presented the proposal for the Methodist 
Buidling addition which would be on the agenda for the following day during 
the report of the Conference Board of Trustees. 

Report of the General Council on Ministries ; Bishop Minnick presented 
J. Allen Norris, Jr., to present the report. Norris pledged to join the 
other two North Carolinians on the General Council on Ministries to provide 
the best possible representation on this important general board. He 

stated that he would be reporting from time to time on the missional 
priorities that were presented. (For complete text of the report, see 
JOURNAL, Section V.) 

Report of the Lake Junaluska Assembly ; Bishop Minnick called upon 
Reginald Ponder to present the report. Ponder discussed the changes at 
Lake JunaiusKa and emphasized the increased good living space for retreat 
groups and conferences. He expressed thanks for the giving to Lake 
JunaiusKa Assembly and emphasized what the presence of this assembly

all nations of the world to disarm so as to reduce this real possibility of 
wholesale destruction." There were speeches for and against. The question 
was called and the amendment carried and will become a part of the 
resolution. A representative from Burlington spoke against the entire 
resolution on the grounds that we were representing the entire church and 
not just a tew people. A speaker from Elizabeth City expressed opposition 
to the entire statement. Randy Hillman of Ocracoke made a speech in favor 
of the resolution. The Board presented its position. There was another

Methodists of this Conference would feel as he left his post, since his 
name was also synonymous with higher education, and particularly private 
higher education, in North Carolina. Sanford addressed the Conference and 
emphasized the bond that exists between the University and The United 
Methodist Church. Sanford's remarks were heard with appreciation by the 
Conference. He was accorded applause.

Let Us Tune Our Loftiest Song". He then introduced the second in his 
series of Bible Studies to a full audience. Minnick spoke, discussing the 
four points he had made on Tuesday, and said that while the Bible was 
ancient in many dimensions, it was totally relevant to the modern age. He 
emphasized that the cultural setting was Oriental: it was written in 
Eastern style rather than Western style. He then reflected on the Bible as 
literature. It confronts us with God's Word. It continues to confront us 
with God's Word in its diverse settings. He illustrated the various types 
of literature contained within the Bible and their setting. Bishop Minnick 
directed our attention to the Apocalyptic image, elucidated on the meaning 
of that image and its significance for today. He described Apocalypticism 
and its imagery as "the CB radio language of the Bible". He then discussed 
Biblical literature as fable. After all of the dimensions of the Bible as 
literature have been plumbed, they are meaningful only insofar as they help 
us to discern profoundly the meaning of the Word of God and hear God speak. 
Minnick then listed five other statements on his belief in the Bible. 
Minnick referred to reason, tradition, Scripture, and experience, with 

162 



Jesus as the fifth point of his pentagonal. Finally/ everything is viewed 
in light of Jesus Christ as the Incarnate Word, and he said: 

"(1) It is important to read the Bible direct ionally and not 
segmentally. • . 

(2) It is important to read the Bible in the light of the readers' 
response. . . 

13) It is important to read the Bible experient ially as well as 
propositionally. . . 

(4) It is important to read the Bible wholis tica lly. . .and 

(5) It is important to read the Bible as gospel, not just as 
systematic theology. "

Ministries : Robert Redmond called upon Ernest Porter to take the podium to

could oe used in each local church. 

Point of Personal Privilege : Robert McKenzie rose to present Judge 
Ballard Gay of Jackson, NC, who had been a lay member in attendance at

Report of the Board of Missions : Caswell Shaw presented the report 
for the Board. Shaw referred to pages IV-25-27 of THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, 
RECOMMENDATIONS AND REPORTS 1985. For the policy recommendations he 

referred to pages 11-17-19. The resolutions and the report were adopted by

people remember the number 801-000-60 as the number for this Advance 
Special. Shaw presented Ken Home to further explain the potato project. 
(For complete text of the report, see JOURNAL, Section V.) 

Shaw gave an update on the disaster in Bangladesh and indicated UMCOR 
had sent $10,000 of immediate funds to Bangladesh. Shaw felt this would be 
the first in a series of necessary commitments; he hoped that others would 
join in giving Advance Specials to this cause. 

Report of the Conference Board of Trustees : Charles Mercer presented 
the report and asked Herb Stout and other members of the Board of Trustees 
to join him in making the report. (For complete text of the report, see 
JOURNAL, Section V.) The information sheet handed to the Conference on the 
preceding day gave the specific diagrammatic information concerning the 
projected extension to the Methodist Building and prior literature had done 
the same. Mercer explained the project and placed the resolution before 
the Conference. 

Charles William Holland of Raleigh, who is in the business of rental 
real estate, expressed his opposition to the church going into the rental 
real estate business in order to finance an addition to the building on the 
grounds that it was in direct conflict with proprietary interests. He 

presented a substitute motion. 

Substitute Motion : Charles William Holland moved "that the Conference 
instruct the Conference Board of Trustees to continue with their effort to 
secure enough space for the needs of the Conference in and/or at the 
Methodist Building but not to use rental property or rents to finance such 
efforts and to explore all possibilities of returning the now rented office 
space at the Methodist Building to the use of the Conference." 

Sam McMillan asked Charles Mercer questions that were necessary: 
First, had the tenant made a long term commitment? Mercer said there was 
no definite contract for projected tenancy. McMillan asked what would be 
the cost to the Conference of maintaining the building. Herb Stout said it 
would be $120,700 per year to maintain it. A portion of this money is 
coming from current rents. 

Wallace Kirby asked what would happen if portions of the building 
being used by Methodists should be used by the current tenant. Stout 

stated it would have a negative effect on the cash flow, but he could not 
state exactly how much. To do away with rentals and use the entire space 
for Methodist purposes, on the other hand, would require an additional 
$120,000 plus per year to operate the building. The Holland substitute was 
placed before the Conference for a vote. The substitute was lost and we 
were back to the main motion. 

Robert Brainard of Saint Mark's in Raleigh asked about the financing 
and the period of the mortgage. Mercer indicated that the Methodist Home 
for Children offices could be combined, but only preliminary discussions 
had been entered into concerning that matter. Stout answered the question 
that a 30-year mortgage was a long time and that every attempt would be 

164 



made to pay it off at a faster rate. The motion to add to the Methodist 
Building was adopted. 

Change in Order of the Day ; Joseph Bethea requested that the order of 
the day be changed so that the Layperson of the Year Award might be made. 
The Conference adopted this with a two-thirds vote. 

Lay Person of the Year ; J. Allen Norris, Jr./ was presented to name 
the person selected to be the Lay Person of the Year. Norris called 

attention to the sheet distributed naming the 1985 District Lay Persons of 
the Year, which demonstrated the superior qualities of so many of the fine 
lay persons that we have among us in our Conference. Conference Lay Person 
of the year/ Margaret Saunders of the Elizabeth City District/ long-time 
leader of First United Methodist Church in Elizabeth City, was recognized 
with a standing ovation from the Conference assembled. Norris presented 

her to the Conference for remarks. A plaque of recognition was given to 
her. 

Recognition of Chaplains ; The order of the day was called in order 
that there would be time for recognition of the chaplains. It was noted 
that chaplains were all among us, not only military, but also in civilian 
life, and that these played a great part in the ongoing unified ministry of 
the church. This order of the day is an opportunity for us to see these 
chaplains who are so busy in their individual labors and recognize them. 
The chaplains were called to the stage and came forward one by one and 
introduced themselves and told where they served. 

Continuation of the Conference Council on Ministries Report ; 

Report of the Board of Health and Welfare Ministries ; Bishop Minnick 
called upon Joseph C. Parker to present the overall report. Parker 

referred to pages 11-23-26 of THE CONFERENCE PROGRAMS, RECOMMENDATIONS AND 
REPORTS 1985 regarding the election of trustees. Changes were made by 

Parker. These will appear in the 1985 JOURNAL. A motion was made to 

substitute Lloyd Gurley for William Winslow in the Class of 1986. It was 
done. Ruth MunOy moved that Mrs. Carolyn High be replaced by Joyce Vereen. 
This was supplemented by the Board's nomination of Jean Sharpe. Mrs. 

Vereen was selected for nomination to the trustees of the Retirement Homes. 
Nominations were accepted as amended by the Conference. 

Motion ; James Bailey moved "that we adopt as the process for the 
selection and nomination of trustees for our Children's Homes and our 
Reirement Homes the process we currently use to nominate trustees for our 
three colleges." Robert McKenzie asked for a point of clarification on how 
trustees were selected. Bailey's motion would allow each Board of Trustees 
to elect its successors. The Bailey motion failed. 

Announcements ; Secretary Pro-tern Joseph Bethea made announcements. 

Benediction ; Bishop Minnick gave the benediction. 

Postlude: The postlude, "Prelude in C Major", was played by the 
organist of the morning. 

THIRD DAY, AFTERNOON SESSION, Wednesday, June 5, 1985

All were approved. 

Arthur Phillips moved "that the name of the North Carolina Conference 
Brotherhood be changed to 'The North Carolina Fellowship" to show an act of 
Christian acknowledgement of the inclusiveness of our fellowship, since all 
ministers were no longer men." One person rose to ask the question, "Would 
'fellowship* accomplish this, since the word 'fellow' was also a masculine 
term?" Reginald Ponder offered a substitute to the Phillips motion "to 
call the organization 'The North Carolina Conference Community of Clergy. '" 
Tom Holtsclaw offered a substitute to the substitute, asking the 
Brotherhood to study the matter and suggest a new name at Conference next 
year. The Holtsclaw substitute was adopted.

Brotherhood and mentioned how it had been one of the first organizations he 
joined when he became a Methodist preacher. He also encouraged lay people 
to become non-beneficiary members to show their support of the clergy. It 
was mentioned that as the number of people increased, the benefits were 
able to increase. With that statement the annual meeting of the 

Brotherhood was adjourned.

Roberto' Keef brought the presentation and asked the Conference to sing 
"Jesus Loves Me". After leading in prayer and the Conference's joining 
together in the Lord's Prayer, O'Keef stated that this was the reenactment 
of an opening of a Sunday School Assembly that he remembered many years 
ago. He lamented the passing of the truly warm and encouraging Sunday 
School fellowship that was truly a Sunday School and not just a series of 
individual classes without continuity. He expressed his gratitude that he 
had been requested to chair a committee to bring new life back to the 
Sunday School. He described the mailings that would be going out as well as 
the help that had already been provided through special courses at the 
Conference Summer School and emphasized the FETCH program. He then 

presented Herman Winberry. (For complete text of the report, see JOURNAL, 
Section V.) Winberry's exhortation to the Conference was received with 
thunderous applause.

Winberry on the Sunday School be printed in its entirety and distributed to

gave some examples of what had happened. That concluded the presentation.

and the Bible Study for the morning. He read Psalm 1:19, verses 91-105. 

169 



Minnick stated he wished to draw together some of the ideas that he had 
presented in the last several mornings. He did this by discussing the 
dialogue between the creationists and the evolutionists. He spoke of the 
ancient Oriental beginnings of the stories of creation. Minnick said that 
the question was not the methodology of creation but the fact that God was 
creator and the theology thereof. The narratives are the best scientific 
knowledge of the day and the revelation had to be made in terms of that 
knowledge. 

The Bishop then spoke about his trip to Nicaragua/ deviating from the 
Bible study, but reporting on what he had done at the request of many 
members of the Conference. 

Bishop Minnick concluded the study and requested that we move into the 
Love Feast. 

The Love Feast ; Thomas Smith led in the beginning of the Love Feast 
by giving his own testimony. The newly ordained deacons and elders 

distributed the traditional elements of bread and water as a mark of 
Christian love and commitment. The elements were held until they had been 
distributed to everyone and then they were taken together. Testimony and 
sharing occurred and hymns were sung along with words of Scripture and 
poetry and all forms of Christian expression and experience. 

Many of the Conference participants brought marvelous testimony to the 
power of God's love in the lives of others and in their own lives - how 
their lives had been touched by others and by their love and trust in God. 
Many gave thanks for the church and the blessings of the Lord Jesus Christ 
that had come to them in the recent years and what had happened in the 
earlier years of their lives. Some songs broke out spontaneously and were 
picked up and sung by the congregation. Tommy Smith asked all to join 
hands and closed with a prayer and the singing of "Lord Jesus, I Love 
Thee. "

ROBERT MARRINER GRADELESS 
1908 - 1984 




When Brother Bob Gradeless died, I lost one of the dearest friends I 
have been privileged to know and love. The genuineness of his lifestyle 
was the thing that drew me to him when we first met. 

Whenever I recall him and our friendship, I remember something about 
that expression, "The Greeks had a word for it". 

Imagine with me. A customer takes a statue or an ornament made of 
marble, simple stone or the like, to be repaired by the sculptor. The work 
is done by the workman's use of wax rather than the material needed. In 

time, the deceit, as well as the flaw, becomes obvious. 

Repairs done properly were said to be made "sine cera", that is, 
without wax. From this we get one of the most beautiful words in the 
English language, sincerity. To the best of my knowledge, Robert Gradeless 
lived a life completely "without wax" in relationship to all individuals. 
He was sincere and utterly free from disguise. His absolute contempt for 
dishonesty and fraud was well known by everyone who knew and loved him. 

Robert Marriner Gradeless was born March 10, 1908, in Belhaven, NC to 
George J. and Jane Hodges Gradeless. 

On September 15, 1934, he married Alice Cuthrell of Aurora and Bethel. 
They had a very special marriage and life together, and God blessed them 
with two children, James Hodges and Eleanor Jane. 

Additional survivors, after 50 years of exemplary marriage, include 
five grandchildren and three great grandchildren. 

Brother Bob attended John Wilkerson High School in Belhaven, Louisburg 
College, Duke Divinity School and Candler School of Theology at Emory. 

He entered the Methodist ministry in 1950 and his appointments were 
Chowan, Bridgeton, Red Oak-Yorks, St. John in Kinston, Hubert, 
Haw kins -Tabor, Evansda le-Black Creek, Chadbourn, Shady Grove, Ocracoke, 
Trenton, and Wi lliston-Smyrna. 

Brother Bob retired in 1974, having chosen his hometown for 
retirement, the place where he grew up and dearly loved. He died July 8, 
1984, in Pungo District Hospital, Belhaven. His body was laid to rest, 
July 10, in the family cemetery at Belhaven. Funeral services were 

conducted by the Reverend Tom Hollis, pastor of Trinity United Methodist 
Church, Belhaven, the Reverend Dr. Julian Scott of Kinston, and this 
writer. 

This memoir would not be fair to Robert Gradeless if it also did not 
include the fact that, to those familiar with the political scene, local 
and beyond, he was affectionately known as "Mr. Republican". 

His church life and his political life were very much alike in that 
both were based on honesty of intentions and an obvious lack of false 
pretense. 

Our Conference has lost a Christian gentleman and spokesman for our 
Lord, and I have lost a personal friend. One day we shall meet again. 

In appreciation, 
Ralph I . Epps 



LEON WARREN ROSS 



190 3 - 1984 




Leon Warren Ross, a retired United Methodist Church minister, died at 
Nash General Hospital, Rocky Mount, NC on July 20, 1984. Funeral services 
were held at Johnson's Funeral Home in Rocky Mount by Reverend Wade 
Goldston and Reverend Jerry Cribb. Interment was at Elon Presbyterian 
Church Cemetery in Elon, VA. Reverend Wayne Meredith officiated. 

Born September 3, 1903 in New Jersey, Ross was educated at Washington 
College in Maryland and Dickinson Seminary (now Lycoming College) in 
Williamsport, PA. After graduation, he served churches in Virginia, 
Delaware, Maryland and North Carolina. He was received on trial in the 
Peninsula Conference in 1932 and admitted into full connection in 1934. He 
transferred to the North Carolina Conference in 1956 and retired in 1969. 
He then served three years after retirement, totaling 40 years of service 
to the Church. 

Ross was a member of Granite Lodge No. 177, A. F. & A. M. in St. 
Michaels, MD, and the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of 
Wilmington, DE. 

He is survived by his wife, Anne Collier Ross of Monroe, VA; two 
daughters, Colleen Ross Baker of North Port, FL and Shirley R. Peterson of 
Ponchatoula, LA; one step-son, William L. Hildrebrandt of Elon, VA; six 
grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. 

When I think of Brother Ross, a verse of Scripture from the Apostle 
Paul comes to my mind: "For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus 
the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake". (2 Corinthians 4:5) 
These words describe both the life and ministry of Ross. He was a 

self-effacing person, requesting before his death that little be said of 
him at his funeral service. He highly exalted his Lord. Like John Wesley, 
he could have said of his own preaching: "I offered the people Christ." He 
sought not the "high" places in the Church but the "low" places. Jesus' 

words fit him well: "Everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled, but he 
who humbles himself will be exalted". (Luke 14:11) 

The last charge that Brother Ross served as a retired minister was the 
West Halifax Charge in the North Carolina Conference. Just prior to his 
giving up his work, on Sunday, June 3, 1973, Dr. Ralph Hardee Rives, member 
of the Eden Church on this Charge, had these praise worthy words to say of 
Ross: "Since last September, he and Mrs. Ross have greatly endeared 
themselves to us. They have become a 'part of us', and our church; our 
lives, and our community are richer today because they came our way". 

Dr. Rives goes on to say of Mr. Ross: "You have shown real 

dedication to mankind. . .your deep faith has strengthened our faith. Your 

quiet, dedicated ministry, your sincere witnessing at all times of the 
Christian faith, your nobility of spirit, have set high standards for us to 
try to measure up to in our own lives. 

When Mr. Ross came to complete this Conference year (19 72-73), our 
church was in a state of confusion and frustratrion and despair. . .Mr. 
Ross's greatest contribution has been that of a 'mender'. He has helped us 
to keep our church alive and intact. He has kept us going and encouraged 
us to grow over our unpleasant memories and e xperiences. . .As a result of 
the past year, I like to think that we are all a little more understanding 
and a little more compassionate. And that, to me, is what Christianity is 
all about, anyway." And so the Eden Church proclaimed the third day of 
June, 1973, "Ross Appreciation Day". 

210 



I can think of no better way to end this memorial to Brother Rosss 
than to quote a poem which Dr. Rives quoted on "Ross Appreciation Day". 
The poem was written by Mahatma Gandhi while imprisoned in the year 1930. 

This and this alone 

Is true religion... 

To serve thy brethren! 

This is sin above all other sin, 
To harm thy brethren! 

In such a faith is happiness/ 

In lack of it is misery and pain: 

Blessed is he who swerveth not aside 
From this straight path: 
Blessed is he whose life is lived 
Thus ceaselessly in serving God: 

By bearing others' burdens, 

And so alone, 

Is life, true life, to be attained: 

Nothing is hard to him, who, casting life aside, 

Thinks only this... 

How may I serve my fellow men? 

Wade Golds ton 



LLOYD CRAWLEY BROTHERS, SR. 
189 3 - 1984 




"Brother Brothers", as he was affectionately known to many of his 
peers and congregations, was a true "brother" to his fellow man. One of 

the original "Circuit Riders", his earliest charges were covered from horse 
back or horse and buggy. When an early Ford became available, it often had 
to be pulled by church members on horses out of deep mud to reach a 
service. 

Lloyd was born November 13, 1893 to J. J. and Mary Ellen Garrett 
Brothers in the Elizabeth City area of North Carolina. He worked his way 
through Trinity College (now Duke University) graduating in 1917. During 

college, an appendectomy at nearby Watts Hospital (also now Duke) 
introduced him to the care of nurse, Corrie Lee Page. The relationship 

bloomed into marriage on November 8, 1918 while Lloyd was serving as a 
World War I Army chaplain. Overseas orders canceled by the Armistice and 
his subsequent discharge enabled the young minister and his bride to begin 
their almost 43 years of service with the North Carolina Conference. 
Pastorates included Columbia, Bath, Erwin, Stonewall, Bailey, 

Robe rs on vi lie , Spring Hope, Kenly, Warrenton, Oxford, Conway, Middleburg, 
Halifax, Rocky Mount, and Wake Forest. 

Lloyd and Corrie raised two sons, L. C. Brothers, Jr. (deceased 
2-8-56) and William N. Brothers. To be near their remaining son, they 
moved to California after spending early retirement years in Raleigh, NC 
Lloyd continued to do "guest-shots" in local pulpits whenever possible 
until finally an operation removed his left leg. No longer able to care 

211 



for the pregressively bedridden Corrie but still able to minister to others 
through prayer and gospel singing, Lloyd was forced to give up his 
apartment. The couple moved into new quarters at the Royalwood Nursing 
Home in Torrance, California- In March of 1982, Corrie now blind, was 
called to rest, leaving Lloyd to continue a lonely ministry to his fellow 
patients. Alert, lucid, reading his Bible and "The Advocate" until the 
very end, Lloyd now in his ninetieth year was called to join his beloved 
Corrie in a heavenly charge. 

Survivors include one son, William N. Brothers of the Los Angeles 
Area; a grandson, Or. Michael Brothers of New Orleans; sisters, Mrs. Edith 
Thompson of Phoenix, AZ, Mrs. Alice Whitehurst of Elizabeth City, NC, Mrs. 
Bertie Gregory of Elizabeth City, NC , Mrs. Grace Spangler of Norfolk, VA , 
and Mrs. Mary Shipp of Chesapeake, VA; brothers, John A. Brothers of Black 
Mountain, NC and James A. Brothers of Sunbury, NC. 

Interment was at Green Hills Memorial Park, San Pedro, California on 
September 12, 1984. Funeral services were conducted by Reverend Thomas L. 
Rothhaar.

WILLIAM NORMAN VAUGHAN 
1895 - 1984 




The Reverend William Norman Vaughan, at 88 years old, died at the 
Coble Health Center of the Methodist Retirement Home on October 1, 1984 
where he had lived for about 12 years. 

A gradeside service was conducted at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Richmond, 
VA by the Reverend Kelly Wilson, III, Chaplain of the Coble Health Center. 

Surviving are sons, Richard Stone Vaughan of Richmond and William 
Norman Vaughan, Jr., of Marietta, GA; a brother, LeRoy Vaughan of Jackson, 
NC; six grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. 

Born on October 22, 1895 at Scotland Neck in Halifax County, he 
attended Halifax Schools and Trinity College. Mr. Vaughan was admitted 
into the NC Conference in 1922, received his deacon's orders in 1926 and 
elder's orders in 19 28. 

Finishing his education and carrying out his commitment to preach, he 
served at Epworth in Raleigh, Henderson, Calvary in Wilson, and Swan 
Quarter. Following his marriage to a school teacher, Kathleen Ernestine 
Horman from Manteo on January 27, 19 25, together they served churches at 
Bath, Vanceboro, Rocky Mount Circuit, Wanchese, Northgates, South Mills, 
Lillington, Faison, Spring-Garysbur g and Evansdale at Wilson. During these 
busy years of faithful service to the church they were blessed with two 
sons and the communities in which they lived were blessed by their presence 
and ministry. 

With more than 30 years of dedication to Christ's work, Mr. Vaughan 
retired in 1950. He and Mrs. Vaughan moved to Richmond to be with their 
children. Soon after the move to Richmond, Mrs. Vaughan became ill and 
never fully recovered her health but she continually worked in her home and 
in her beautiful flowers and shrubs. Her death came on April 21, 1961. 

Some years later, with his own health declining, Mr. Vaughan moved to 
the Methodist Retirement Home in Durham. While there he met and married 
Elizabeth Hudson Malbone; then following her death on April 23, 1975, he 
later married Margaret Kelly, also of the Home. Margaret died on January 
28 , 1984 .

and everything good in it... I praise Thee and thank Thee for the honor of 
staying 'ere long... Now may I rest and sit with You?"

EARL RAY MEEKINS 




Earl Meekins was born just after the new century on February 5, 1900. 
He and his twin sister Edith grew up in a large, close family in Stumpy 
Point, a coastal fishing village in Dare County. He remembered the village 
before roads were built and before fishing boats had engines. He 

remembered attending a one-room schoolhouse, and the large campmeetings 
with three circles of tents on Hatteras Island. In 1923, he married a girl 
from Stumpy Point, Blanche Hooper, whom he had first met when he was three 
and she was a newborn. They were together for 61 years. 

At about ten years old, Earl decided he should preach and practiced 
from various tree stumps to an admiring audience of other children. But it 
was another 30 years before he actually became a full-time minister and 
began the process of training, summer schools at Duke Divinity School and 
Candler School of Theology which resulted in his becoming a member of the 
North Carolina Conference in June 1955. 

In those intervening years Earl pursued many trades, accumulating life 
experiences which helped make his ministry compassionate and meaningful to 
so many. He had been there: he understood the economic realities of his 
parishioners. He served in the Coast Guard in World War I. He established 
a family grocery store in Elizabeth City only to see it swallowed up in the 
Great Crash of '29. He fished commercially with his beloved brother Lit, 
moving their families back and forth seasonally between fishing villages, 
eking out the Depression. He relocated, along with a mass of other coastal 
boatbuilders , to Norfolk when World War II necessitated huge crews in the 
shipbuilding yards of Tidewater. For the first time, Earl and Blanche had 
resources and security. 

Finally by 1944, the point toward which Earl's life had always been 
leading came. The North Carolina Conference had so many ministers in the 
wartime chaplaincy that it could not fill its home pulpits and turned to 
holders of local preacher's licenses. Earl agreed to take a charge. He 

began his ministry on the Hatteras charge from 1944-45 and continued to 
take appointments for the next twenty years. He served the Chowan charge 
1946-49, Columbia 1950-54, Perquimans 1955-56, Robbins Circuit 1957, 
Friendship 1958-60, Columbia Circuit 1961-62, and Columbia Church 1963-64. 

He loved his churches. He visited with genuine interest in seeing how 
the folks lived their lives and what they needed from him and from their 
church. His sermons were never pretentious, never scolding, never 

self-righteous. He was an example of an honest, upright, hardworking man 
whose relationship with God was obvious but not ostentatious. He laughed a 
lot but never at anyone else's expense. He displayed a warm heart and a 
forthright manner, never pretending to be what he was not. His sermons and 
his life were integrated: he was who he was. His last church was a repeat 

213 



appointment - meaningful to him as a sign of the warm regard and respect of 
the people for him to request him back again. After his retirement he 

compiled the statistics of his twenty years of service: he had baptized 
294 - 96 infants and 198 adults; he had received 565 members into the 
church - 265 on profession of faith and 300 by transfer. There are, 

however, no statistics on how many lives he touched with warmth and faith 
and strength. His favorite hymn was "A Charge to Keep I Have" and it seems 
particularly symbolic of his ministry. 

After a serious heart attack in 1964, Earl retired, moving to Manteo 
where he and Blanche had previously established a family owned motel. Earl 
began a different kind of work. He gardened extensively, providing an 
endless stream of vegetables for the motel restaurant. He built a cottage 
on the land where he grew up on Stumpy Point. He maintained a steady 

physical pace, caring for the gardens, dealing in real estate, fishing, 
building a boat, helping manage the family motel business. Occasionally he 
preached when he was needed. 

The life suited him. His heart lasted a long time, and even in spite 
of a bout with cancer he remained extraordinarily vital and productive to 
an advanced age. That may have been partly because he always looked ahead. 
Though he had exceptionally clear recall of events of 75 years or more ago, 
he did not dwell in the past but continously planned his next projects. At 
84, he planned to double the size of his lakefront garden, and bought a 
huge tiller to accomplish that. Within the last week of his life, he was 
astride a roof, putting shingles on a new building to house his tiller on 
the same land where his father before him had gardened. 

What was he like? How will he be remembered? With a saltine cracker 
or a homemade biscuit in hand, whistling a vague tune as he walked and 
thought out his plans for a sermon or a business venture, listening to 
every baseball game he could find on television even after he was too deaf 
to really hear the announcer, carrying a little notepad and pen in his 
shirt pocket for scribbling and tic-tac-toe with his great-grandchildren, 
making corny jokes with all the children and drawing them to him by his 
grin and his unmistakable affection, arguing politics with his brothers or 
talking theology with anyone who displayed the slightest interest, digging 
septic tanks and drainfields for the motel property, bringing baskets of 
long green cucumbers from the fields and thankful to be productive at an 
age when many are not able to move from their chairs. 

He was a man of keen intelligence and common sense, a shrewd 
businessman who yet never looked for the unfair advantage. He was a good 
minister who led but never got lost in the pride of leadership. He was a 
firm father who yet never needed to be stern. He was a good husband who 
instinctively thought of marriage as a partnership and lived out that code 
long before it was fashionable. He was an attentive and generous 

grandfather. Family was almost everything to him. His children, 

grandchildren, and great-grandchildren recognized and loved him for that 
fiercely. Many of his family were there when he died quietly on October 
20, 1984. His survivors are his wife, Blanche Meekins of Manteo, his 
daughters, I na M. Evans of Manteo and Mary M. Beauchamp of Newport News, 
his 10 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death 
by one daughter, Lois Meekins Jackson of Drake's Branch, VA. 

An American author, Willa Cather, wrote a story called, "Neighbor 
Rosicky" about a man who built his life on values of hard work, love, firm 
principles of goodness and honesty, and remaining in touch with the land, 
the root of who he was. My father never read the story, but he lived the 
life. He thought of himself as a quiet man. We thought of him as a man to 
be respected, not coldly nor on a lofty plane, but warmly, happily, 
lovingly. He lived a long life - not long enough for us, but in the final 
analysis, long enough to satisfy him. His life was beautiful and it was 
complete. Thanks be to God.

CAREY HOUSTON BRIGMAN 
1926 - 19 84 




Carey Houston Brigman, son of Boggan and Alice Reynolds Brigman, was 
born in Richmond County in North Carolina on August 28/ 1926. He also grew 
up in Richmond County and graduated from Rockingham High School. He 

attended Pfeiffer College, Louisburg College and Duke University Pastor's 
School. 

Carey died on December 6, 1984 at West Onslow Beach in Onslow County. 
Funeral services were held at the Carroll Chapel United Methodist Church in 
Sneads Ferry, NC. Officiating were New Bern District Superintendent M. 
Whitfield Warren, Jr., and the Reverend Clyde B. Cheezem. He was laid to 
rest in the Straits United Methodist Church Cemetery in Carteret County. 

On November 24, 1944, Carey was married to Ella Mae Humphrey and they 
had a special life and a special ministry together for 40 years. Carey's 

survivors include his wife; one son, Rodney Houston Brigman of Barkers 
Island, NC; one daughter, Ellen Dale Johnson of Straits, NC; three 
grandchildren, Mia and Meg Brigman and Carey L'Neal Johnson; and one 
brother, Jack P. Brigman of Hamlet, NC. 

Carey served his Lord as a United Methodist minister for 13 years. 
His first appointment was to Mount Gilead Circuit followed by Straits-North 
River and then Carroll Chapel. He was licensed to preach in 1960, ordained 
Deacon in 1967 and admitted into Associate Membership in 1970. 

On November 1, 1965, Carey suffered a massive heart attack and another 
one in May of 1977. Cause of death was Eschemic Heart Disease. He was a 
quiet, gentle man but strong in his Christian convictions. Being "brought 
up" from childhood with a keen sense of "right and wrong", 
life that way. 

After retiring from the ministry, Carey worked for 
government until his death. He was known to all as a good 
his work and a fine gentleman in every sense of the word. 

Carey's favorite hymn was "In The Garden": 

I come to the garden alone, 

While the dew is still on the roses, 

And the voice I hear, 

Falling on my ear, 

The Son of God discloses. 

And He walks with me, 

And He talks with me, 

And He tells me 

I am His own, 

And the joy we share 

As we tarry there, 

None other has ever known.

WILLIS ROSWELL STEVENS 
1907 - 1984 




"What doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy 
God/ to walk in all His ways, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy 
heart and with all thy soul?" (Deuteronomy 10:12) 

Willis Roswell Stevens, truly a servant of God, was called to his 
eternal home on December 8, 1984 after suffering a series of heart attacks. 
The final one came on Thanksgiving evening as the family gathered for 
dinner. He was taken to Johnston County Memorial Hospital in Smithfield, 
NC, where a few days later, he peacefully slipped away with a prayer on his 
lips, "Thy will be done. Thy will be done." His last act of love, was the 
bequeathing of his earthly temple to medical science with the hope that it 
may be used for the betterment of mankind in the years to come. 

Willis was born on September 25, 1907 in Wendell, NC, the only son of 
Milton Roswell and Donia Hales Stevens. These devoted Christian parents 
taught him to love God and his fellowmen and encouraged him to grow as 
"Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man". 

As a small boy, Willis informed his parents that he wanted to be a 
preacher and a few years later, while living in Smithfield, NC, he accepted 
Christ as his Lord and Savior and became a member of Centenary Church. It 
was there that he received his call to the Christian ministry. In June of 
1929, on the recommendation of his pastor, the Reverend D. H. Tuttle, he 
received his license to preach. One of his most cherished possessions was 
the Bible that was presented to him at that time. 

Willis was graduated from Hugh Morson High School in 1928. In 

preparation for the Christian ministry, he studied at Duke University, NC 
State College, and Emory and Henry College, where he received his A. B. 
Degree. He continued his theological training at the Biblical Seminary of 
New York. 

While at the Biblical Seminary, he met Elma Hensley of Tusculum 
College in Greeneville, TN . They were married in the College Chapel on 
October 26, 1935. To this union were born three sons, Willis Jr. of New 
Bern, NC , Robert (deceased), and Franklin Hales of Weddington, NC. A 

daughter, Elizabeth Anne Stevens Jordan, resides in Charlotte, NC. Now 

there are beloved in-laws and six grandchildren. 

Willis was admitted on trial to the North Carolina Methodist 
Conference in November of 1935 at Wilmington. His ministry began soon 

after that as he served the six churches of the Bladen Circuit. His other 
appointments were as follows: Wesley Memorial in Wilmington; the Goldsboro 
Circuit in Wayne County; Rosemary in Roanoke Rapids, Trinity in 
Jacksonville; Chestnut St. in Lumberton; Rockingham: First; Trinity in 
Wilmington; Centenary in New Bern, District Superintendent of the 
Greenville District; Fairmont in Raleigh, Home Memorial in Clayton; and 
Asbury in Smithfield as a retired supply. It was here in Smithfield, his 
boyhood home, that he and Elma spent more than twelve happy years after 
their retirement in 1972. 

During his more than forty years of service in the Christian ministry, 
Willis constantly stressed that every phase of the Church program should 
have as its chief objective the directing of lives toward a personal 
commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour through the preaching, the 
teaching and the living of the Word. This he did as a gifted preacher, an 
able administrator, a builder, a devoted pastor, husband and father. 

In addition to his duties in the local church, Willis accepted the 

216 



opportunity and challenge to serve on various conference boards and 
agencies. These included the Board of Missions/ the Board of Education, 
the Board of Pensions, and a number of years as a trustee of the Methodist 
Retirement Home in Durham. He was Conference secretary of the Board of 
Pensions for sixteen years. During that time, he became known as a special 
friend and counselor to the retired ministers, their widows, and orphans, 
always seeking ways to promote and provide for their well being. He was so 
efficient and dedicated in this service that, at one time, he was asked to 
consider serving with the General Board of Pensions. He chose to remain in 
his beloved NC Conference. 

Willis had great faith in and love for the youth of the church. He 

rallied to their needs in many areas of their lives as a pastor and friend, 
helping them to come to grips with their problems and difficulties in a 
victorious way. This he did as a camp director, leader of retreats and 
assemblies - along with personal witnessing in his everyday living. 

This love of young people and his ability as an organizer and 
counselor took Willis beyond the bounds of the NC Conference. During ten 
weeks in the summer of 1959, he and his wife, Elma, were counselors of the 
NC Conference European Youth Caravan, sponsored by the Board of Missions. 
They, with eight college-age young people, lived and worked with members of 
Methodist Churches in England and Europe, helping them to rebuild and 
repair their churches which had been ravaged by war. 

In 1964, he was appointed District Superintendent of the new 
Greenville District which he organized and promoted for six years. Under 

his leadership and that of dedicated ministers and lay people, the 
Greenville District became a center of activity for the building of the 
Kingdom of God in that area and across the world. 

Along with his ministerial duties, Willis was active in the affairs of 
the local communities in which he served, lending support and often 
directing fund drives for humanitarian purposes. This was especially true 
during the polio epidemic in the early fifties. His efforts were acclaimed 
across the state. 

Willis cherished the fellowship with his fellow ministers. His 

closefriend and brother in Christ, Dr. O. L. Hathaway, paid this tribute to 
him following his death. 

"W. R. Stevens gave the best of his years in service in the NC 
Conference. Wherever he was appointed and whatever work he was asked to do 
on boards and committees, he gave it his best. He loved the Church and his 
ambition was to win those under his leadership to a commitment to Christ 
and the Church. The people in the churches he served loved him and 
appreciated his leadership. It was a great joy for me to have him as a 
dear friend. Many people have been blessed by his life and good works. 
His home was a haven of peace and love, always open to his friends." 

A memorial service of Celebration and Thanksgiving was held on 
Tuesday, December 11, in Centenary United Methodist Church in Smithfield, 
where so many years ago, Willis had dedicated his life to the Christian 
ministry. 

The service was conducted by his pastor, the Reverend Hugh Cameron, 
the Reverend Paul Edwards of Goldsboro, and the Reverend Charles Michael 
Smith, Distict Superintendent of the Goldsboro District. 

In the memorial sermon, Mr. Cameron shared these thoughts, "We gather 
today to do two things: to honor the memory of Wilis R. Stevens and to 
thank God for his life. So many of us have been touched by his life and I 
find it somewhat ironical that I should be his pastor now. He was my 

pastor when I was a child. His oldest son, Willis Jr., and I joined the 
Church together. Wi'llis started me on my Christian life walk and I'm here 
as he finishes his. I cannot add to his Christian witness by what I say. 
His life has so eloquently preached this sermon. Like Abraham, he went 
where he was called. Like Moses, he led people from doubts and fears to 
confidence to face difficulties. Like Jonathan, he met many a discouraged 
brother minister and cheered him by sharing God's strength. Like David, he 
sang the Church to victory. Like Daniel, he was true to his boyhood 
teachings learned here at Centenary. Like John the Baptist, he delighted 
to preach. Like Paul, he rejoiced that Jesus died for all, even you and me. 
Willis was a consecrated Christian minister, husband, father, and 
grandfather. I do thank God for his life and the touch I received. Now we 
must carry on. We must proclaim the saving message of hope. We honor his 
memory and thank God for his life." 

We, his loved ones, are most grateful for the host of friends, 
ministers and lay people alike who sent messages of consolation and shared 
in this memorial service. As someone said, "It was a beautiful and 
appropriate tribute to a man whose life touched so many and even in death 
continued his ministry by this uplifting service of Celebration and 
Thanksgiving. 

217 



A few years ago, the ministers of the NC Conference were requested to 
make a summary of their accomplishments during their years in the ministry. 
Willis finished his report with these words: 

"For whatever accomplishments I may have achieved during my ministry, 
I give God the glory. I present my report unashamed. The people in my 
churches and in my Conference have been good to me. My Christ has been 
more than gracious in love, patience, understanding and a supply of 
spiritual resources." 

We thank God that he touched our lives. 

His loved ones, 
Elma and Family 



FREDERICK JOHN DUPLISSEY 



1908 - 1985 




Frederick John Duplissey died in his daughter's arms on January 4, 
1985 after gathering firewood for their home in Kenly, NC. Due to ill 

health, Fred had retired in 1977 after 23 years of service in the North 
Carolina Conference. 

He was born in Chesterfield, MA and orphaned at the age of four when 
his mother pinned his name to his coat, left him outside a grocery store 
and indicated that she would return shortly. However, she never returned 
and Fred was placed in an orphanage where he grew up and was later able to 
attend Ando ver-New ton College as well as Harvard Theological Seminary. Due 
to his experience as an orphan, Fred never left anyone alone. He gave his 
utmost attention and expressed concern to each and everyone; and he shared 
readily with all friends and strangers. 

Called "Papa Dubinskey" by many who knew him so well, with a twinkle 
in his eye and a pointed finger he would say, "Son, you'd better believe 
it". This was one of Fred's favorite expressions when emphasizing a point. 
He got the nickname, "Papa Dubinskey", when he and his choir were guests in 
a brother minister's church. When introducing Fred, the brother minister 
could not remember the name, Duplissey, and he stated that he was glad to 
receive his good and long-standing friend, "Reverend Dubinskey". There was 
much laughter among the choir members but the name remained with Fred 
through the years as a sign of affection, admiration and love. 

He was always a great spinner of good stories about his military 
career and of his experiences in the Navy chaplaincy. His daughter, 

Martha, said that he participated in five major beac.i landings where he led 
his "boys" and was one of the most decorated chaplains of World War II 
because of his heroism and fearlessness. Fred joined the North Carolina 
Conference following his retirement from the Navy chaplaincy with the rank 
of Commander. He served the following charges: North Gates, Spring Lake, 
Hamlet: Fellowship, South River, Fletcher's Chapel, New Sharon and 
Kenly-Buckhorn from which he retired. 

Thelma Duplissey, affectionately called "Mama Dubinskey", preceded her 
husband in death. Their home was often opened to friends for the greatest 
scalloped oysters and the best fish chowder in the world. They enjoyed 

their many friends and family. Evidence of their many friends was 

displayed on Sunday, January 6, 1985 when Grizzard Funeral Chapel was 
filled to capacity with those paying tribute to Fred and expressing 
sympathy to the family. He is survived by a daughter, Martha, with whom he 
shared the home and his son, Bill, of Suffolk, VA. 

218 



Fred's life was indicative of what he meant when he said, "Son, you'd 
better believe it" because this was the manner in which he preached the 
gospel of Jesus Christ: positively, passionately and pe rse ve ringly.

ALAN DE LEON GRAY 




My brother, the Reverend Alan De Leon Gray was born in Brighton, 
Jefferson County, AL on August 1, 1908. He was the youngest of three 
children born to Alan Duffy Frank and Minnie Katherine Gray. 

He received his early education in public and private schools of the 
Birmingham District. He graduated from Simpson High School in Birmingham 
in 1932; graduated from Birmingham - Southern College with a A. B. Degree 
in 1938; and Duke Divinity School in Durham, NC receiving his B. D. and M. 
Div. Degrees in 1941. 

When Leon was 8 years old, he presented himself for membership in the 
Brighton Methodist Episcopal Church South. The Reverend William McDonald 
was afraid that he was too young to realize the seriousness of joining the 
church but he gave him some guidelines to study. In March of 1918, he 
seriously took the vows and became a member. In 1921, Leon felt the call 
to preach and the Reverend U. S. Pitts counseled with him for he was only 
13 years old. Reverend Pitts recommended him for Exorters License to 
Preach and his first sermon was preached at Brighton Methodist Episcopal 
Church South in September, 1923. For many years he was active in the 
Epworth League, always attending the Annual Conference at Montavallo 
College. 

While Leon attended Birmingham - Southern Collge as a ministerial 
student, he served Sixteenth Avenue Methodist Church, now Houston Memorial 
United Methodist Church in Bessemer, AL and Ernest Chapel Methodist, now 
Ernest United Methodist Church in Concord, AL . 

While attending Duke Divinity School, Leon fell in love and married 
Miss Saralee Willis of Cartaret County, NC. She was the daughter of the 
late Walter Lee and Mary Ida Willis of Atlantic, NC. 

Leon wrote his thesis on the Methodist Orphanage in Raleigh, NC , a 
subject very dear to him. 

Leon joined the NC Conference in 1941. He was ordained Deacon on 
November 4, 1943 and ordained Elder on September 9, 1944. He served the 
Methodist Church of Jacksonville, NC from 1941-45. From November 1945 

until December 1946, he served as pastor of the Snow Hill Methodist Church. 

During his tenure at Jacksonville, NC he temporarily served as 
Superintendent of Onslow County Hospital, after the superintendent resigned 
and until a new one could be found. While there he was Chairman of 

Infantile Paralysis Foundation, Chairman of March of Dimes and Trustee of 
Crippled Children's Society of Onslow County, NC. 

In November, 1946, the Board of Directors of the Oxford Orphanage 
elected Leon as Superintendent of that Institution. Having been left an 
orphan at the age of 6 when his father passed away, it was his life 
ambition to work with orphanage children. 

Upon Leon's retirement from the Orphanage, I quote from his retirement 
address: 

"Somewhere in living I discovered an axiom: A man is lucky who has a 
wife who loves him, a friend who trusts him, children who admire him, a God 

219 



who guides him, and a job so large that he must depend upon all three. 
Herein abides my career as Superintendent of Oxford Orphanage. 

It has been a long life, but never a dull one. Years and days filled 
with growth and development in the heart of North Carolina. A mystical 

union of many facets of life, bound together by unique spiritual ties. 
Herein are involved children of many ages who live, or have lived "under 
the oaks", along with thousands of members of our large Masonic family 
where abideth beauty beyond compare. 

There is a great trauma involved in laying down my working tools. I 
know that I have trod three giant steps that were allotted me. I may wish 
to remain because the job is not complete, but it cannot be complete, so 
long as there is a child in need and a heart pure enough to meet the need. 
So now I stand aside to be absorbed in reflections, memories of beauty 
shared tender as a budding flower, yet as glorious as the rising sun and as 
majestic as the setting of the same." 

As Superintendent of Oxford Orphanage, Leon served as President of NC 
Child Care Association, SE Child Care Association and Masonic Home 
Executives Association of the United States of America. 

After retirement from the Orphanage in August 1973, Leon and Saralee 
moved to Beaufort, NC, the childhood home of Saralee's, to enjoy the sunset 
years. 

Again they answered a call from their Lord and Master to serve Cedar 
Island Methodist Church for three years. There they enjoyed the love and 
fellowship of those with whom they became acquainted. Then they were 

forced to retire again because of failing health. 

Leon was a gentle, deeply religious man. He was devoted to the more 
than 15,000 children who it was his privilege to nuture and guide. He was 
devoted to his wife of 43 years. And his loyalty to his fellowman was 
surpassed only by his worship for the God he served. 

He answered the last call from his Lord and Master on January 5, 1985. 
His funeral was from the St. Paul Episcopal Church with the Reverend George 
Muir, Rector; the Reverend Wilbur C. Teachey, pastor of Ann Street United 
Methodist Church; and the Reverend Robert L. Nicks officiating. His last 
resting place is in the adjoining cemetery. 

Leon is survived by his beloved wife, Saralee Gray, two foster 
daughters, one sister, Mrs. Florence Gray Sims, one niece and one nephew. 
A host of friends will miss his cheerful greeting and friendly smile, his 
never forgetting to say "thank you!" for any courtesy shown him. 

To My Brother Alan De Leon Gray - 

Early in life, he set his goals. He wanted 

to serve God and be of service to mankind. 
He reached for the sun and found God. 
He reached for the moon and found that 

its light made a beautiful path to follow. 
He counted the stars in the canopy of heaven. 
Tho' each star was small, they shed a 

radiance that made the heaven a beautiful sight. 
So he, too, would let his light shine as the stars. 
He not only lighted his path of service, but 

it has shed a radiance for many to follow 

thru' the years to come.

JOHN DANIEL LONG 
1910 - 1985 




John Daniel Long was born in Orange County on February 15, 1910, the 
eldest of five children born to Thomas A. and Luna Dodson Long. He lost 

his father at the tender age of ten. As a young boy he learned to plow the 
fields and work at any task to help his mother provide for the family. As 
a young man he felt the call to the ministry, but failed to heed the call 
until years later. John was well known around Chapel Hill and Hillsborough 
for his work as a carpenter and was successful in various occupations, but 
never found true satisfaction. Always there was that feeling deep within - 
the call to preach. 

God spoke to John in many ways, and finally the conviction to preach 
the gospel became so strong, he went to talk and pray with a Christian 
friend. "How can I, with little education and limited funds ever become a 
Methodist minister?" John asked his friend. The friend replied, "With 
God, all things are possible". So in the fall of 1952, at the age of 42, 
he laid aside his carpenter's tools and entered Louisburg College. It was 
difficult for him to attain the high grades and goals he set for himself. 
But with the help of many friends and the support of his family, he made 
it. Ever in his mind were the words of his friend, "With God, all things 
are possible". He attended Louisburg College two years and then 

transferred to Atlantic Christian College in Wilson. John's first 

appointment was in 1953 to West Halifax, then Wesley Memorial and 
Milwaukee. In 1963, he transferred to the Virginia Conference and served 
South Franklin charge and attended school in Virginia. John returned to 
the NC Conference in 1967 and served Woodington-Webb, Belhaven, Trinity and 
the Kinston Circuit. 

Following retirement in 1980, he and his wife, Elizabeth, moved to the 
home he had built for them in Lenoir County. He continued his ministry at 
Richlands Circuit as a retired supply until he suffered a stroke in October 
of 1983. 

Later, doctors diagnosed John as having Alzheimer's disease. Although 
the disease took its toll, he never complained or lost his desire to 
preach. He suffered multiple strokes in February, 1985 and was in Lenoir 
Memorial Hospital when he entered life immortal on March 14, 1985. 

Funeral services were conducted on March 16 by the Reverend Richard T. 
Commander and the Reverend Harold F. Leatherman. His body was laid to rest 
Makrch 17, 1985 in Mebane, NC. Graveside services were conducted by the 
Reverend Steven Hickle. 

Surviving are his wife Elizabeth, daughter Mrs. Anne L. Ellington of 
Fairfax, VA; stepson, Richard Doyle and stepdaughter, Mrs. Jane Owens, both 
of Roanoke, VA; one brother, Winder Long, two sisters, Mrs. Nellie Mclntyre 
and Mrs. Ruth Tyson, all of Mebane. 

John led a very inspiring life, loving his work, serving God and His 
people. He loved God, and he loved his family who now find comfort in 
God's words: 

"I am the resurrection and the life; he that believeth in me though he 
were dead, yet shall he live."

FRANCIS GEORGE BRYANS 
1912 - 1985 



Francis George Bryans was born in Buffalo, NY on May 30, 1912. He was 
the son of Frederick and Anne Tisdall Bryans and was the oldest of four 
children. Fran was married to Anna Dorigi on May 29, 1937 in Buffalo. His 
wife preceded him in death as did his brother William. He was survived by 
his children, Anna Bryans Williams of Salt Lake City, UT and Donald George 
Bryans of Kinston, NC; a brother, Reverend Frederick Bryans of Hillsdale, 
MI; a sister, Mildred Campbell Parks of Ashland, OH; and four 
grandchildren, Kimberly and Dina Williams of Salt Lake City, and Donald and 
Chad Bryans of Kinston. 

Fran was employed by the DuPont Company for over 35 years, first 
working at the plant in Buffalo, NY and later in Kinston, NC. 

Fran had been raised in the Disciples of Christ tradition and until 
his transfer to North Carolina was a member of Forest Avenue Church of 
Christ in Buffalo. As a youth, he was involved in Christian Endeavor, the 
church choir and men's organizations of the church. He was also a member 
of Occidental Lodge F&AM of NY where he later was presented with a lifetime 
membership. Fran became 32nd degree Mason and was a member of the 
Consistory of Buffalo. 

Long feeling the call to respond to God's love, Fran related to his 
family a very moving experience in his life when he was in his early 
forties. He had been diagnosed as having cancer and was recommended as a 
candidate for radical surgery. This surgery left him with a temporary 
paralysis of his face and tongue rendering speech as impossible. While a 
patient at Buffalo General Hospital, his roommate was a Presbyterian 
minister, confined to a wheelchair because of crippling arthritis. Seeing 
Fran become more depressed because of his condition this minister 
encouraged him to be his legs and he would be Fran's voice. The two became 
a team visiting patients in the hospital. Through the long lonely days of 
recovery this team supported each other as they reached out to many 
persons. This very special ministry helped Fran realize that he had much 
work to do in life and it later gave him the encouragement to pursue an 
active part in the Methodist Church in Eastern North Carolina. 

He first served as a lay preacher and traveled with his wife to many 
rural churches filling in during the absence of a minister. He attended 

Pastor's School at Duke University and in June of 1976 was ordained deacon 
at the Annual conference. Fran served as pastor of Bethany United Methodist 
Church and Webbs Chapel United Methodist Church in the Kinston area. 

After a long battle with cancer Fran died on May 4, 1985. A service of 
Thanksgiving and Memory was held on May 7, 1985 at Webbs Chapel United 
Methodist Church with the following friends conducting: Reverend Rick 

Commander, Reverend Don Lee and Reverend Jere Rouse. He was laid to rest 
at Westview Cemetery next to his- wife, Anna. 

A few words of love: 

"Fran Bryans was a gift, one of God's own tiny children. And for a 
time, God gave Fran to the world in order that two human beings might have 
a child. And, later that a woman might have a husband. And later, that 
some children might have a father. And some other children might have a 
grandfather. Fran defined what it really means to have a husband, a father 
or a grandfather. Because of Fran the world understood more fully the 
greatness of the love of God. God loved the world so much that he gave it 
Fran. That was nice of God."

LOTTIE LEE TALTON JONES 
1906 - 1984 




Lottie Lee Talton Jones was born September 29, 1906 in Raleigh, NC to 
William R. and Mary E. Talton. She received her early education in her 
hometown. In her youth, she became a member of Jenkins Memorial Methodist 
Church in Raleigh. 

During the Great Depression, Lottie Lee met and fell in love with 
Talmadge Penn Parrish, also of Raleigh. They were soon married and to this 
union were born four children, three girls and one boy. Their son, 

however, died at birth. Surviving are their daughters, Hollis Parrish 
Stephenson of Raleigh, Audrey Parrish Hickman of Garner and Evelyn Parrish 
Finnocchio of Raleigh and Pembroke Pines, FL . 

Lottie Lee was a devoted Christian wife and mother through the years 
of this marriage. Following the death of her husband she spent some twenty 
five years not alone but caring for her family and those that were dear to 
her. 

Lottie was remarried on September 2, 1973 at the Garner United 
Methodist Church to the Reverend Horace C. Jones, a long-time member of the 
Holston Conference and later member of the North Carolina Conference. 
Reverend Jones, though retired and still wishing to remain active to his 
call to preach, was serving as associate pastor of the Garner United 
Methodist Church at the time of their wedding. They resided at 3408 Downey 
Court in Raleigh until his death on May 27, 1980. She remained at the home 
until she was admitted to Duke Hospital in Durham where she died on 
September 9, 1984 after fighting a battle with cancer. 

The Reverend Kermit L. Braswell officiated at her funeral service at 
Hayes Barton United Methodist Church in Raleigh where she was a member. 
Interment was at Montlawn Memorial Park in Raleigh. From Lottie Lee's 

first marriage, she was survived by three daughters, nine grandchildren and 
twelve great-grandchildren. 

Lottie Lee Jones was active in the Asbury Sunday School Class at Hayes 
Barton Church and was deeply devoted to her husband, Horace. The intense 
love they had for each other grew with the years and was indeed a blessing 
and joy for all who knew them. Lottie's favorite hymns were "Amazing 

Grace" and "How Great Thou Art". A close fellow Christian noted about 
Lottie Lee, "I think of the happiness she brought to Mr. Jones in his later 
years. She gave so much of herself to everyone she cared about". 

Lottie Lee's children remember her for her encouragement to them and 
for her assistance to all who needed her, especially children and the 
elderly. Her hospitality was exemplary; she was an excellent cook, 
specializing in fresh greens and cornbread, which were always in demand at 
her Grandmother's lunches. Lottie Lee was a kind-hearted and generous 
Christian lady who was much loved. She is greatly missed by her loved 
ones. 

Lovingly submitted,

EUNICE RICH POWELL 




Eunice Claire Rich Powell was born August 13, 1902 and died on October 
14, 1984 in Raleigh. She was the wife of Howard P. Powell, a deceased 
member of the North Carolina Annual Conference, and their marriage was 
blessed with a son, Howard Peterson Powell, Jr. Theirs was a joint 

ministry and together they sought to love God truly and to serve their 
neighbors faithfully. 

Eunice Powell was an energetic, active person. The first time either 
of us met her she was on a ladder painting her kitchen; it was a sign of 
her style. She was a doer. She cared about her home, her yard, her 
flowers. Even more she cared about her husband, her son, her 
daughter-in-law, her granddaughters and her friends. 

Mrs. Powell was a persistent person: strong in her opinions, direct in 
her comments, tenacious to her causes, and constant in her relationships. 
She was loyal and protective of family and friends. 

She published GIVEN TO HOSPITALITY, a cookbook whose biblical title 
was representative of her life. She also wrote memoirs for her family and 
remembrances of parsonage life for family and friends. She loved visits, 
gatherings, and open houses. Those who knew her remember her Christmas 
parties; no flat surface in her home was without a decorative 
arrangementand everyone there was a chosen guest. 

Eunice Powell was a giving person. When you visited, she gave 

cookies, jelly, candy, a book - for whatever she had she offered to others. 
But even with more intensity, she gave herself, her concern, her love. This 
giving extended to her faith which she unselfconsciously shared with her 
friends and church members through her classes in the women's prison, by 
prayer, and through gifts handmade for particular people. 

Because she was who she was, Eunice Powell struggled almost to the 
end. She did not relinquish life easily. But when the end did come she 
characteristically faced it with hope and with happiness. She lived and 
died trusting God. 

Death came in the autumn, in the fullness of time, in the leaf season; 
and Eunice Powell, along with the fallen leaves, nourishes the earth and 
those who live upon it. 

Mrs. Powell once gave our family a book. On the fly leaf she wrote, 
"One of my treasures for your keeping". In this time of remembrance we 
offer this friend to God, and we say to the Giver of all good gifts, "One 
of our treasures for your keeping".

PEGGY ANNE JOHNSON SABISTON 
1936 - 1984 




Peggy Anne Johnson Sabiston was born on August 5, 1936 in Greensboro, 
North Carolina. She died in Duke University Medical Center on November 4, 
1984, All Saints Sunday, after a brief illness. 

Peggy grew up in Greensboro and graduated from Greensboro College with 
the first certificate granted by our state in special education. She 
pioneered in working with children with special needs and problems, 
youngsters with learning disabilities, and she drew consistent praise from 
educational leaders and parents for the quality and effectiveness of her 
work. 

She married William D. Sabiston, III, two days before her 
twenty-second birthday and helped him through Duke Divinity School and 
throughout his ministry as a model of what one looks for in a clergy 
spouse. They were blessed with a daughter, Susan Roberson, and a son, 
William D. , IV. 

Peggy's place in the sorority of ministers' wives was marked by her 
concern that these women would come to know and support each other. She 
worked with Mary Jeanne Blackburn in organizing "Ministers' Wives 
Potpourri", now an annual gathering of these parsonage wives that makes 
them feel renewed and refreshed about their special role. 

Her funeral was conducted by Vernon C. Tyson, Samuel D. McMillan, Jr., 
and Charles M. Smith at Edenton Street Church in Raleigh. Michael W. 

Safley assisted in her burial service the following day in Greensboro. 

Thanks be to God for his servant and our friend, Peggy.

LYDIA DANIELS LUPTON 



1917 - 19 84 




Our beloved Lydia Lupton finished her earthly pilgrimage on November 
8, 1984 and reached her eternal home with her Christ ly Father's love at the 

225 



same moment. 

Her family remembered Lydia in these ways: "Although proud/ 

articulate/ and precise; she became all things to all people. She was on 
top of any situation." "She always considered others first. She enjoyed 
much company for she thought of it in terms of giving something back to 
people." "She was prepared for death and calm in the face of it." 

Lydia Lupton was sincere down to the core of her being. There was no 
sham or pretense/ she was always just herself. She was a tall, beautiful 
lady with a queenly bearing, and yet a manner that immediately put everyone 
at ease. There has never been a sweeter or more dedicated minister's wife; 
she was a "people person", loving and showing interest in everyone she 
knew. She was constantly entertaining persons and groups of all ages and 
backgrounds. She took particular delight in telling children's stories. 
Lydia always had a positive attitude towards life. Her character was 

sterling and she was dignified at the right moments. She knew what was 
right/ and insisted on doing the right. If you had her for a friend, she 
was loyal for life. 

She and her devoted husband, James, definitely thought of the ministry 
as a team effort. Their many kindnesses have been remembered by the 
congregations they have served so faithfully and lovingly through the last 
27 years - Cedar Island, Harlowe, Seven Springs, St. Paul in Rocky Mount, 
Autryville, Angier, and Salem in Simpson. James retired in June, 1983, 
following his Salem appointment. James and Lydia then had a few months at 
their Cedar Island home before moving to Greenville for Lydia's hospital 
care. 

At Lydia's last hospital stay, in the midst of her pain and suffering, 
if you would ask her how she felt, she would answer, "Well, I'm going to 
have a better day tomorrow." Never would it be, "I don't feel well". She 
was, and is, a happy spirit. 

Lydia Daniels Lupton was born on March 31, 1917, at Cedar Island, NC. 
Her parents were James Riley Daniels and Cora Goodwin. She grew up with 
her brother, Floyd Daniels (deceased) and her sister, Etta Daniels Mercer. 
She graduated from East Carolina University and immediately began her 
career as an elementary teacher at Cedar Island. She also taught at 

Atlantic and Seven Springs and several other places. She met James Glenn 
Lupton while at Cedar Island and they were married on June 1, 1940 in 
Morehead City. James was in the fishing business initially, then was 
called to the ministry, in which he has served in a superior manner these 
many years. Lydia supported James 150% in his chosen field. We cannot 

speak of Lydia without talking about James. They were constantly together. 

To their marriage were born three sons of which they can be justly 
proud - Bruce, Glenn, and Howard. They were devoted to their mother and 
father, as they were devoted to their sons. She was also a marvelous 

grandmother to her grandchildren - Jimmy, Glenn, Kim and Anita. Lydia 

enjoyed each member of her fine family. She expressed kindnesses to them, 
as well as others, which were over and above all expectations. James and 
Lydia lived together for 44 happy, meaningful, and service-filled years. 

This spokesperson for God lived out her dedication through love and 
kindness, and died at Pitt County Memorial Hospital in Greenville on 
November 8, 1984. The funeral was held in that same city with our 
Methodist brethren, R. T. Commander, Ellis J. Bedsworth, and Louis Lint 
conducting the service. Interment was in the Pineview Memorial Cemetery of 
Greenville.

MILDRED WHITENER AUMAN 



1921 - 1985 




Mildred Whitener Auman was born to Fred E. and Gay Nell Ritch Whitener 
in Shelby, NC on September 13, 1921. She died suddenly on March 10, 1985 

227 



in Graham, NC. She is survived by her husband, the Reverend James A. 
Auman; a son, Dr. Richard Auman of Chesapeake, VA; three daughters, Beth 
Jennings, Rose Lucas and Becky Auman, all of Raleigh; five grandchildren; 
three sisters, Mrs. Hugh Peeler of Shelby, Mrs. W. P. Zink of Greensboro, 
and Mrs. William Hube of Raleigh; and one brother, Fred W. Whitener of 
Southern Pines. 

Mildred was educated at Sue Bennett College in London, KY and at 
Greensboro College from which she graduated with a major in English and a 
minor in Religious Education. She worked as a Director of Christian 
Education in two churches - First United Methodist Church of Henderson from 
1941 to 1943 and Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church of High Point from 
1943 to 1945. While at Wesley Memorial, she met and married James Auman on 
April 29, 1944. After their marriage, Mildred worked with Jim as an active 
partner in ministry in the congregations they served - Stem, Four Oaks, 
Fayetteville Circuit, Camp Ground, Hertford, Garner, Highland in Raleigh, 
Trinity in Jacksonville, the Wilmington District, First in Henderson, and 
First in Graham. Mildred also served as secretary to two of our Bishops, 
Paul N. Garber from 1964 to 1968 and William R. Cannon from 1968 to 1972, 
and as a secretary to Annual Conference for twelve years. 

Throughout her life, Mildred used her many gifts to "make clear the 
message" of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Her keen mind, her love for 

reading, and her writing ability enabled her to share her faith in many 
ways. She was a teacher and a teacher of teachers in the local church, in 
a kindergarten in Garner, and across the Conference in Christian Workers' 
Schools and in lab schools for workers with children. Through her work as 
the Bishop's secretary, she touched the lives of countless ministers and 
lay people across the Conference. In 1958, as a part of a project of the 
Board of Missions, she and Jim took a caravan of college students to Europe 
to deepen understanding and improve relationships between the two 
continents. 

Mildred was a person who lived her faith daily - and comfortably. She 
was a listener who was willing to hear the tale without prejudging the 
teller and who was wise enough to ask hard questions without always having 
the answers. As a pastor's wife, she was always prepared - to entertain 
young parsonage visitors with a treat and toys, to find an extra place at 
the table for unexpected guests at any meal, or to serve as a gracious 
hostess and intelligent conversationalist. As a mother and grandmother, 
she was seldom too weary to give her time and attention to each child and 
was loved, appreciated, and admired by her children and grandchildren. 

Mildred was a faithful steward of her own gifts and graces. And, 

beyond that, she had that rare ability to enable others to use their gifts 
more fully. When her daughter Rose was seeking a passage of scripture to 
read to her fellow seniors at their high school graduation, Mildred 
suggested that she look at Romans 12. Much of that chapter is devoted to 
respecting all people for the gifts they have as individuals and blending 
them together into a complete community. Mildred spent much of her life 
building and nurturing that kind of strong organization and community of 
the Church. 

A Service of Celebration and Thanksgiving for Mildred Auman was 
conducted by Bishop C. P. Minnick, Jr., and the Reverend F. Owen 
Fitzgerald, Jr., on March 12, 1985 at First United Methodist Church of 
Graham. Burial in Graham Memorial Park followed the service. Bishop 

Minnick captured the essence of Mildred's life when he said: "Mildred did 
some beautiful things for God in this world and some beautiful things for 
God's children in so many places in this Annual Conference and far beyond." 
Because of her experience of God's love in her own life, Mildred had a 
great love for things of beauty - sunsets and flowers and butterflies and 
seashores - and for the things that make for beauty of the soul. That love 
of beauty flowed through her life into the lives of others, drawing forth 
the good and the beautiful in us. Thanks be to God for the gift of her 
life among us!

PHALA HAWKINS LOVE 




Phala Hawkins Love was born December 29, 1889 in Independence, MO and 
died March 18, 1985 in the Coble Health Center of the Methodist Retirement 
Home in Durham, NC. In that long span of ninety-five years she blessed 
many lives with her radiant Christian spirit, her excellent teaching 
abilities and her fine musical talents. 

Daughter of a Methodist minister, she grew up in a number of cities in 
Missouri and lived for several years in Roanoke, VA and Baltimore, MD . 
Following graduation from public schools in St. Louis, MO, she attended the 
St. Louis Conservatory of Music from which she was awarded degrees in voice 
and piano. 

While working for the Board of Education of the former Methodist 
Episcopal Church South in Nashville, TN , she met and married Dr. Franklin 
Swindell Love who at that time was president of Louisburg College. 
Following the Louisburg College appointment, they served pastorates at 
First Church in Wilson, First Church in Elizabeth City, Edenton Street 
Church in Raleigh, Grace Church in Wilmington, and Front Street Church in 
Burlington. Other appointments included district superintendent of the 
Raleigh, Elizabeth City and Durham Districts. 

In 1944, Dr. Love became superintendent of the Lake Junaluska 
Assembly, serving in that capacity until 1950. During these years Mrs. 
Love worked in the Assembly office and opened her home to delegates and 
distinguished visitors to all major conferences and schools. 

Whether it was on the college campus, the Lake Junaluska Methodist 
summer headquarters, the district parsonage or the local church, Phala Love 
was always the gracious hostess, the talented leader and the courageous 
Christian in upholding the high moral, ethical and spiritual standards of 
her church. She was a valuable helpmate, a strong leader in her own right; 
always seeking to make the church a vital and effective witness in the 
community and in the world. Her husband was one of the ablest and most 
dedicated leaders in North Carolina. His encouragement and support of young 
ministers - including this writer - provided courage and strength to many 
who were struggling to apply the Gospel to the glaring social ills of the 
day. Mrs. Love had a way of getting to the heart of issues with clarity 
and insight and was quick to discern sham and hypocrisy, whether it came 
from the pulpit or the pew. 

For a number of years, Mrs. Love taught the prestigious and 
influential Betsy Peele Women's Class at Edenton Street Church in Raleigh. 
She was a leader in the Women's Missionary Society, later United Methodist 
Women. She conducted many mission study programs, organized units and 
served as a District and Conference officer. She used her musical talents 
generously in the service of the church. 

When, in 1960, the couple moved to the Methodist Retirement Home in 
Durham, she served as organist and pianist, organized and directed the 
choir, helped organize monthly birthday parties and other special events. 
She prepared and printed newsletters that went to members of the Home and 
for a number of years represented the members on the Board of Trustees of 
the Methodist Retirement Home. 

Before coming to the Methodist Retirement Home, and after formal 
retirement, Dr. and Mrs. Love served the Macon charge in Warren County, a 
fitting climax to a long and fruitful ministry in Christ's church. 

Mrs. Love is survived by a son, Frank S. Love, Jr., of Nashville, TN 

2 29 



and by two step-daughters, Mrs. John O. Evans and Mrs. William L. Belvin of 
greatgrandchildren. ^ ^^^^ * "^ ^ndchildren and seven 
A memorial service was held on March 22 in St. John's Chapel of the 
SraSwftr ^ tl £ ement Home in Durham conducted by the Reverend Kermit 
Braswell, D r . Kimsey King, Jr., and the Reverend Thompson Murray, intern 
chaplain at the Home. Burial was at Hillside Cemetery in Laurinburg, £c? 
beside her husband. 

reare^iiVi^H "^ thiS ^^^^^ servant of Christ, who was born and 
reared in a Methodist parsonage, who spent her active years in Methodist 
parsonages, should spend her last twenty-five years on earth in a caring 
Methodist Home surrounded and supported by caring and loving hands.

Legislative concerns of the Council have focused in five areas: Ecology 
in North Carolina, Migrant Farmworkers, Housing in North Carolina, 
Alternatives to Prison, and an Expanded Public Defender System. The 

Council continues to explore possibilities tor joint television 
programmi ng. 
COMMISSION ORGANIZATION 

When the Commission had its planning meeting at Methodist College in 
August, 1984, it set up its work in four sub-committees. The Sub-committee 
on Interreligious Concerns will deal with our relationships with 
non-Christian faith communities, an increasingly important dimension in a 
religiously pluralistic society. The Sub-committee on Coalitional Unity 
will handle issues related to how United Methodists can be a part of 
ecumenical service projects, CROP Walks being a familiar example. The 

Sub-committee on Pan-Methodism will seek to continue the interests 
generated during the bicentennial year, how lite can be shared with others 
in the Wesleyan family. The Sub-committee on Traditional Issues will help 
in interpreting and participating in the National Council of Churches, the 
Worla Council of Churches, the Consultation on Church Union, some of the 
broader relationships of ecumenism. 
PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITY. 

The Commission on Christian Unity ana Interreligious Concerns has made 
available resources to help local churches in their observance of the World 
Day ot Prayer, the WeeK of Prayer for Christian Unity, and the Consultation 
on Church Union Sunday. "The North Carolina Christian Advocate" and the 
coordinated mailing have been used to interpret the Interdenominational 
Cooperation Fund. In 1984, congregations in our Conference paid $13,712 
tor the Interdenominational Cooperation Fund. 
NATIONAL COUNCIL OF CHURCHES 

In an ettort to have informed and equipped persons in each district, 
the Commission sent each district representative on Christian Unity and 
Interreligious Concerns a copy ot tne 1984 Report of Counciliar Review 
Committee ot the Council ot Bishops. This report, first shared with the 
1984 General Conterence, offered support for the National Council of 
Churches. The General Conterence re-atfirmed United Methodism's commitment 
to the National Council of Churches. The Council of Bishops has 

established procedures for more intentional involvement in the 
decisionmaKing of the Council of Churches. 
BAPTISM, EUCHARIST, AND MINISTRY 

Three churches in our Conference were asked to conduct studies of 
"Baptism, Eucharist, and Ministry", the document prepared by the Faith and 
Order Commission of the World Council of Churches. The resource states 

places ot possible theological and pastoral agreement in sacramental 
unaers tanding and practice and in ministerial orders. Harker's Island 

United Metnodist Church in HarRer's Island, Jonesboro Heights United 
Methodist Church in Sanford, and Trinity United Methodist Church in Durham 
uegan responses which will become part of our United Methodist reaction to 
the document. 
OTHER MATTERS 

The Commission heard first-hand reports from Collins Kilburn on the 
worla Council ot Churches meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia. . .The 
Media Center videotaped the public television series on Judiasm. .. 
Preparations are underway to observe the 50th anniversary of the North 
Carolina Council ot Churches in 1985. 

F. Belton Joyner, Jr., Chairperson 

BOARD OF CHURCH AND SOCIETY 

"Without change and without risk, I doubt that we can witness with any 
real power." These words come from the State of the Church at the 1979 
North Carolina Annual Conterence. They seem as cogent today as then. 

Our church has set a goal for enormous membership growth in the years 
immediately ahead. This "witness with real power" will require more than 
some special programs, seminars, and training designed by those designated 
to lead us in evangelism. It requires of us a commitment to demonstrate in 
every tacet ot our individual and corporate lives that we are a people who 
care. We are a people who care aoout each individual; about each social 
group; about our neighborhoods, our cities, our counties, our states, our 
nation, and yes, aDout every nation, if we truly believe the words of the 
old hymn, "This is My Father's World". Whenever the Methodist Church has 
experienced large growth, those were also the times that our social witness 
was clear. 

250 



Our task, then, is to expect and assist change, and then, to risk as 
required. So let us remember that our Christian heritage began with One who 
risked ALL. The only questions then are: What changes are being called 
lor? What risk is necessary? This board seeks to assist local churches, 
and the conterence in raising these questions appropriately. 

The Peace with Justice national program was reaffirmed by the 1984 
General Conference ana calls for the church to work for a faithful, 
disarmed, just and secure world. The three goals are these: 

To be obedient to Christ's call to peace ana justice. 

To work tor a peace that promises freedom from racial discrimination 
and the right to human dignity. 

To involve members at the United Methodist Church to growing movements 
tor disarmament, peace in Central America, economic justice and civil 
rights. 

This then calls the whole church and every member to prayer, study and 
action tor peace with justice. 

To that end, our board has begun a process this year to locate where 
special efforts tor justice are being called for by our times and the 
guidance of God. We would be looking for opportunities to assist a local 
church, a cluster of local churches, or a district in making a response to 
an ongoing need for justice ministry in a clearly defined area in society. 
We would oe looking for opportunities to assist those in specific local 
situations in developing and executing a plan of ministry that would be an 
appropriate ministry and which would serve as a model for other local 
churcnes. 

At the same time, we are planning opportunities to expand our own 
awareness ot society's needs by planning experiences such as the UN Study 
Tours. In addition, we present for your consideration, resolutions in two 
arenas that our study and prayerful consideration has led us to understand 
are timely and significant. We also present a position paper and ask your 
endorsement of these three papers.

emphasized through such courses as "Our NC Conference Heritage" and 
"Spiritual Disciplines in the Wesleyan Tradition". A colorful Learning 

Center and the stirring musical drama "Strangely Warmed" performed by St. 
James Church, Raleigh, also reminded us of our rich heritage. Dr. Tommy 

Tyson, Conterence evangelist used as the themes of his messages the great 
Wesleyan doctrines of grace and assurance.

BOARD OF EDUCATION 

NEW EMPHASIS GIVEN TO THE SUNDAY SCHOOL 

"Tne Sunday School is a group of people who meet together weekly, 
organized as they need to be organized/ with officers and teachers who work 
with those who are available." The Sunday School, vitally important to the 
life of the church, has four traditional functions: 

1. Outreach - According to the Great Commission, Matthew 28:16-20, 
making disciples is the charge given us. We are to do this by baptizing and 
teaching. The Assemblies of God, one of the fastest growing religious 
bodies in our nation, reports that 90% of that growth comes through the 
Sunday School. The Southern Baptist Church receives 80% of its new members 
through the Sunday School. For us, 60% of all new members come through the 
Sunday School. It we are to grow we must work at the evangelistic task of 
reaching out and enrolling more children, youth and adults in our classes. 
We strongly recommend the conference FETCH campaign and its dual emphases 
on enrollment and attendance. 

2. Nurture - Sunday School is the place where we keep up with people. 
In the midst of a high tech society that is growing increasingly 
impersonal, Sunday School is called to be a place of high touch. 

3. Teaching - Sunday School is a school. In The United Methodist 
Church 4 1/2 million students are present each week. That's a lot of 
children, youth and adults learning to be disciples. 

4. Developing Leaders - For many of us Sunday school was where we first 
stood up and became a leader. Yes, Sunday School is very important! 
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT 

In the North Carolina Conference more and more people are recognizing 
the importance of our educational ministry. Last year attendance in 

Christian Workers Schools totaled 825, a 20% increase over 1983. In 

addition, 555 persons attended Sunday School Growth and Renewal Conferences 
held in the Goldsboro, Rockingham and Sanford districts. The primary 

leader tor these was Dr. Warren Hartman, director of research for The Board 
of Discipleship. At Conference Summer School 106 persons attended the 
class "Revitalizing Your Church School" led by Dr. Roy Ryan, and 133 
persons attended the classs "Reaching Out Through The Sunday School," 
co-led by Kirk McNeill and James Cowell, all of the Board of Discipleship 
staff, Nashville, Tennessee. Most recently, at the January Workshops, 414 
persons attended the class on eaucation. This was the second largest 

attendance in any of the 16 classes. Conference youth events involved a 
total of 1,200, again an increase over the previous year. The TLC 

(Teaching, Learning, caring) program has continued and skilled and 
enthusiastic leaders are available to help your church strengthen its 
ministry with children. 

We are excited about what is hapening in our churches, districts and 
conference when it comes to Christian education. 

In adaition, a statistical report follows this report showing trends in 
membershiip and attendance of the Church School. You will notice that for 
the first time in 15 years, we had a increase of 344 in the number of 
children enrolled in Church School. This has been brought about by the 
increased attendance, or the coming back to the church, of young adults. 
As they return to start their children in the Church School, we are excited 
at the new avenues of witness that are opening up. You will note that the 
number or adults enrolled in the Church School lacks only 13 persons of 
being a break-even figure - the best membership figure also in 15 years. 
We are only 149 persons short of breaking even with our total number 
enrolled in the Sunday School - a fantastic figure after losing persons by 
the thousands tor so many years. We are currently in better shape with 
enrollment and attendance than we have been in a long time - and with the 
possibilities that FETCH, TLC, the symposium on ministry with and to older 
adults, and the young adult and youth programs that are scheduled for 1985 r 
we Iook forward to plus figures in all columns next year. Just imagine 

what would happen if each of our 840 churches had a membership gain of only 
one child, one youth, and one adult in 1985!!

ETHNIC MINORITY LOCAL CHURCH (EMLC) 

During the last four years the EMLC Committee of the NC Conference 
Council on Ministries (presently the Missional Priority Committee) has been 
active resulting in many accomplishments. 

A publication listing names and addresses of the committee members, 
pastors of Ethnic Minority churches, church profiles, church and community 
worKers, goals, and objectives of Native American and Black churches, 
requests tor funding/resources, information about EMCL funds, evaluation 
and application ana applications received and grants approved. Also, a 

conference-wide consultation on the Missional Priority was held for pastors 
and lay persons and more than 700 persons attended. 

WorKshops were held in the Black and Native American communities 
providing knowledge about resources available and skills in proposal 
writing. 

Every EMLC congregation in the Conference has been directly and/or 
indirectly affected favorably. Annual Conference grants, along with grants 
from General Baords and Agencies, have made possible innovative and 
creative ministries in almost every charge. The ethnic minority churches 
are proud of their special music ministries, church van ministries, senior 
citizens service program and Christian education resources and equipment. 
Across the Conference churches have been involved in building and 
structural improvements and expansions. EMLC pastors and lay persons have 
gained access, through financial assistance, to conference, jurisdictional 
and national meetings. Forty-six clergy and lay persons were able to attend 
a special tour of the General Board of Global Ministries, the office of the 
General Commission on Religion and Race and the General Board of Church and 
Society empowering ethnic minority local churches to facilitate mission 
interaction in domestic and global dimensions. 

The Bishop and Cabinet, the Executive Director and Council Staff have 
given effective leadership in the work of the EMLC Committee, and the 
members of the Committee have worked efficiently and effectively in 
concerted efforts to strengthen the Ethnic Minority Local Church. 

Jimmy F. Cummings, Chairperson 

BOARD OF EVANGELISM 

Significant membership growth characterizes our report for 1984. In 

lytlJ we led the Southeastern Jurisdiction and were third in the United 
Methoaist Church in membership growth. This would have been the same for 
1964, except tor some extensive purging of numbers for which we had no 
names on the roll. The majority of our districts reported a net gain of 
members. An increase in youth making their profession of faith and joining 
the church indicates spiritual vitality among churches and families. Youth 
and adults joining by profession of faith totaled 3,187. 

Rededications to Christ and His church are on the upswing. Our pastors 
report these quarterly, and this has been observed as a significant trend. 
This does not change the statistics but it certainly changes the 
spiri tuali ty. 

District events and training for ministries to inactives were held with 
high caliber leadership from our own Conference pastors. This is an 

attempt to learn methods and means of decreasing our loss of members 
"through the backdoor". Since 1957, active participation in all worship 
services has decreased from 60% to 38%. This is why we are in a drive to 
activate our inactives. 

Evangelism has joined education and missions in a task force to promote 
the ministry of FETCH. This is a combined attempt to "find" them, be 
enrolled in church for the purpose of discipling them, "encourage" them to 
become involved, "telephone" or visit them, "cultivate" them as prospects 
tor discipleship, and to bring all together on a "high" attendance Sunday 
in the tall. 

Special evangelistic ministries abound with an increase in lay witness 
missions, gifts tor ministry workshops, Church School growth training 
sessions, youth evangelism convocation for Black churches, and visitation 
workshops. Confirmation classes for youth and adults, as well as training 
pastors to conduct these, continue to increase. 

Preparations have been in operation to respond to the General 
Conference action to double our membership by 1992. A training session was 
held by a General Board of Discipleship representative for the Conference 
board in relationship to these preparations. 

We celebrate the good news of 301 churches being organized for regular 
visitation ministries, 374 churches that set membership goals which were 

254 



specific, and 498 churches that reported having confirmation classes for 
their youth. 

Gene Tyson, Chairperson 



Best Ratio of New Members Received on Profession of Faith 



(Interpretation: It took fewer members to win another person to 
Christ. Example, 100 member church receives 10 on profession of faith. 
This means that it took 10 persons to win 1 new disciple.)

BOARD OF HEALTH AND WELFARE MINISTRIES 

A most important ministry of the church is to meet the needs of the 
people of Goo. In this report and the reports of the agencies of the 
conference under the Board of Health and Welfare can be found the goals and 
purposes of the Board. You will note that the Children's Home report 
expresses the concern for the total family and especially the families in 
crisis. 

The report of the Methodist Retirement Homes will reveal the concern 
for the people of God in the twilight years of life. The home in Durham 
and the Joseph Coble Health Care Facility, the home in Lumberton and the 
new home, Cypress Glen, to be constructed in Greenville, NC , are examples 
of tremendous effort and the expending of great resources. The homes are 
attractive and inviting both from the inside and from the outside. 

However beautiful and attractive the buildings and grounds are there 
must be found in them love, commitment and compassion. These factors are 
vital and of major concern in the operation of the homes. In the absence 
of love , commitment or compassion, these homes may as well be prisons, for 
only the body is housed there. 

Our conference, the local churches and our conference leaders have gone 
to great limits to establish, maintain and uphold these great institutions. 
We are justly proud of our tradition, our heritage and the institutions 
that are now in operation. We are challenged to continue and to enlarge 
upon these ministries, to support the administrators and staff persons 
serving in our institutions. We must expect and require of all concerned 
the highest degree of professionalism possible. 

The report of the Task Force on Ministry to Adult Mentally Retarded 
reveals our concerns for persons in these handicapping conditions. It is 
the goal of the task force to make specific recommendations to the 1986 NC 

255 



Annual Conference. 

The Golden Cross report lifts up the church's desire to minister to the 
whole person. We are pleased to report that any United Methodist that is 
unable to receive medical treatment may apply for funds from the Golden 
Cross. There is a limit of $600 for each applicant. 

The church has a wide and varied ministry, one that calls for strong 
support and cooperation from United Methodists throughout the Conference. 

Other developments to be reported on are: 

1. The report of the Task Force on Ministry to Adult Mentally Retarded 
persons. 

2. The Board of Health and Welfare sponsors, through Conference 
financial support, the Day By Day Treatment Center of Selma in Selma, NC. 
The organization is a highly specialized treatment program for recovering 
alcoholics, both men and women. The Good Shepherd Home of Lake Waccamaw is 
also a recipient of Conference funds. 

3. Prison ministries are carried on at the Johnston County Correctional 
Center by Reverend R. G. Gurley. 1 1 is recommended by the board that these 
funds be shared with the Chaplaincy Service, NC Dept. of Corrections, New 
Hanover County Unit, beginning in 1987. A program of prison ministries has 
been undertaken by the Wilmington Presbytery in New Hanover County and they 
have submitted an application to the Board of Health and Welfare for 
funding. 

Joseph C. Parker, Chairperson 

Golden Cross Report for 1984 

Golden Cross is part of the Outreach Ministries of our Conference. 
This program gives financial assistance to United Methodist lay persons who 
are in need because of medical expenses which are beyond their ability to 
pay. It is a concrete way we fulfill our Lord's directive to care for the 
sick and needy in His name. 

During 1984, 66 people, representing every district in our Conference 
received assistance in the amount of $15,865.88. This is compared to only 
31 cases of assistance in 1983. In addition, we contributed $5,500.00 to 
the cnaplain program at Duke Medical Center and $1,500.00 each to the Good 
Shepherd Home at Lake Waccamaw and Day-by-Day Home in Selma. 

If you know of someone that needs help with their medical expense, ask 
your pastor to fill out an application and send i t to the district health 
and welfare chairperson. 

You can be proud of the part you have in this vital ministry of the 
chur ch. 

Lloyd Edge, Director 

The Methodist Home for Children 

PRO-FAMILY MINISTRY 

The ministry of the Methodist Home for Children is pro-family. This 
ministry to children, youth, and adults seeks to avoid disruption of the 
family. It was this focus on the family that brought about the present day 
transition. The Board of Trustees, the Child Care Study Commission, and 
the NC Annual Conference all agreed in the actions of 19 78-79 that the 
emphasis of this ministry needed to shift from focus on the child, somewhat 
in isolation from his/her family, to focus on the family. 

This approach to child care represents a profound break with the 
philosophy that prevailed in the first half of this century. In those days 
it was assumed that the child could be best served by removing him/her from 
the "weak" family environment and raising him/her in the "superior" 
institution. Today we know that our ministry to the child is best done by 
ministry to the entire family. 
NEW STRATEGIES 

This shift in philosophy led to a shift in strategies. No longer would 
we minister to children on a campus, permanently removing them from their 
natural families. Children who needed care outside their natural family 
would be cared for in homes located throughout the Conference, so that as 
children receive care, their families would also be involved. 

Another major strategy is the Family Life component of our ministry. 
Family Life specialists seek to work at prevention of family disruption. 
The counselor is available to work with families in their own homes seeking 
to avoid disruption of the family. These specialists are capable of doing 
family life education in local churches and assisting local church pastors 
in improving their family counseling skills. 

In order to bring these new strategies into being, significant new 
funding was required. The 1979 Special Session of Annual Conference 

256 



authorized the conversion of the value of the Raleigh campus into assets 
which would be available for the new property acquisitions necessary to 
implement the new strategies. It has been almost six years since that 
action was taken. Your Board of Trustees and staff, together with the 
Caoinet and the Board of Health and Welfare have worked diligently to 
accomplish the sale of the campus property. 
SALE OF PROPERTY 

The sale of the remaining 9.42 acres of the campus property was 
finalized in this way. Following the recommendation of the 1984 Annual 
Conference, the special Property Committee drew up a set of specifications 
stating that the seller would "give extra consideration to any offer that 
includes a proposal that all or part of the property will be used for the 
purpose of developing and building a housing project for the elderly". The 
committee decided to advertise for bids on the property and copies of the 
specifications were sent to all parties who had expressed interest in the 
9.42 acres. The bid opening was held on October 22, 1984 and the 
transaction was finalized on January 9, 1985. 

That transaction brought the net proceeds of the total sale of the 
campus to $6,928,684. This income has been designated the Property Fund. 
A portion of these funds together with other designated funds, have already 
made possible the purchase of four youth homes: Lord Ashley Dr., Raleigh; 
Fremont; Edenton; and North Hills Drive, Raleigh. Six youth homes remain 
to be purchased. We are presently in construction of a youth home in Erwin 
in the Fayetteville District. Plans to purchase homes in North Durham, 
Laurinburg, and Wilmington are now in progress. Acquisition of two 

additional homes is projected for 1986, bringing our total number of 
community based homes to 10. 

Plans are now being perfected for a new administrative building to be 
located on land retained, adjacent to the Methodist Building. The old 

administrative building was vacated in April and the staff is now 
temporarily housed in the Makepeace Building. The Board of Trustees has made 
available a portion of this remaining property to the Annual Conference 
without cost for future use as determined by the Annual Conference. 
CONTINUING SUPPORT NEEDED 

Capital outlays for 10 youth homes and the new administrative building 
will reduce significantly the size of the Property Fund. Earnings from the 
Property Fund and the $5,927,750 General Endowment Fund are available for 
use in partially funding the operations of our total program. As we 

fulfill our transitional goals, the operating budget will increase 
accordingly. The earnings of the Property Fund and General Endowment, 
while significant, represent only a portion of the necessary funds to 
underwrite the year-to-year operating expense of the total program. The 

continuing budgeted support of the Annual Conference and individual 
contributions are essential. 

We live in a time of unprecedented stress on the family. All of us are 
aware of the high level of child abuse that has recently come to light. 
Unstable homes produce unstable children, who if not helped go on to 
establish instability in the next generation. The teaching-family model of 
child care that we use in our community-based homes and our family life 
program otters the reach of Christ's love to our aching world. 

This year has been a significant and demanding year for the Home. Much 
has been done and much yet remains to be done as we accomplish this far 
reaching transition to family-centered care. Your continuing confidence 
and support will go far toward enabling us to accomplish the stewardship 
God is giving to us. 

Rufus H. Stark, II, Executive Director 

The Methodist Retirement Homes, Inc. 

What an exciting and challenging time to be a provider of retirement 
and health care for United Methodists. Exciting because how the elderly 
are cared for is a measure by which our society is judged. Challenging 
because the best we can do will not measure up to the needs. 

In the year 2000 these 65 and older will reach one million in North 
Carolina - a 55% increase over 1980. By the year 2020 one out of every 4.5 
Americans will be retired. 

Because the church looks upon the future as a time to be joyful and 
thankful over the longevity of life, we must use all our talents and 
resources to make the future, for those who have given us so much, 
rewarding and fulfilling. 

By the time this Conference is in session, we will have already broken 
ground for the new Cypress Glen Retirement Community in Greenville. 
Although the Board of Trustees felt it best to build what was known as the 

257 



tirst phase in two segments, we are confident that sufficient funds will be 
received to allow us to complete both wings housing some 125 members. We 

are also anticipating building villas even while we are in construction of 
the main building. 

What is happening on our present campuses adds to our excitement. In 

Durham we will soon start construction on our new villas which will be 
located behind and adjacent to Spence Lake. These will be beautiful homes 
what will provide the flexibility so many are seeking in early retirement. 
There are four different monthly plans whereby residents can choose only 
the services they desire. This project is se If -financing and will require 
no funds from the Home. 

The Coble Health Care Center, which provides both intermediate and 
skilled nursing care, now has a new administrator. He is Mr. Wayne Powers 
who moved as associate administrator of the Retirement Home to Coble Health 
Care Center to take up his duties on March 21. He is a licensed nursing 
home administrator with a master of science degree in long term care 
administration. 

Wesley Pines has come into its own and has been filled for over a year. 
The Reverend Paul Bunn, Administrator, says there is now a waiting list of 
those who are anxious to become residents. Recently, a new apartment 

building was completed and is occupied. A new villa will be under 

construction by Annual Conference. 

Many have heard about our auxiliary. This organization is active and 
is providing much needed support for our Homes. Louise Peterson, 

president, had provided the leadership that has brought the auxiliary to a 
place of prominence in our Conference. 

This report would be incomplete without a word of thanks to the laity 
of this Conference tor their financial support. This year we are receiving 
$300,000 from the budget of our Outreach Ministries. We are indeed 

grateful. This support, along with other funds, will provide benevolent 
help tor some 34% of our Methodist residents and patients who do not have 
adequate funds to pay the full cost of care. 

We are working hard to enlarge our endowment fund so as to be able to 
do more in the future. In 1984, we spent $477,759 in benevolent support. 

From our Board of Trustees, employees, residents, and patients we share 
our excitement over our future and say to you. . .we are proud to be able to 
share in this caring ministry of the United Methodist Church.

SEMAR, Inc. 

SEMAR , Inc. was created by the Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference 
in 1968 to develop and coordinate programs of ministry and service with 
mentally retarded persons and their families. In 1980 the Jurisdictional 
Conference asked SEMAR to expand its horizon of ministry to include all 
persons with handicapping conditions. 

While the not-for-profit corperation continues to function under the 
name of SEMAR, the ministries now include persons who are blind or visually 
impaired, persons who are deaf or hearing impaired, persons who are 
physically disabled or mobility impaired as well as persons who are 
mentally retarded or intellectually impaired. 

SEMAR has developed a wide variety of services and ministries over the 
years through the United Methodist Church in the Southeastern Jurisdiction 
including: 

- Religious Education Classes 

- Camping tor retarded persons of all ages 

- Day Training tor pre-school children, young people, and adults 

- Work orientation, training and work programs for retarded adults 

- Scouting programs for retarded boys and girls 

- Residential facilities for retarded children, youth and adults 
SEMAR has been involved in assisting a special Task Force on Mental 

Retardation in our Annual Conference over the last six months. As a result 
of that study, it has been determined that there are approximately 180,000 
retarded persons in North Carolina of whom 106,034 live within the bounds 
of the North Carolina Annual Conference - and more important, more than 
8,000 (8,165) are related to families who are members of the United 
Methodist Church in our Conference. 

The Task Force on Mental Retardation will report on its progress and 
recommendations as a part of the Board of Health and Welfare Ministries 
Report. One of the greatest needs that the task force has uncovered is 
that of residential alternatives for retarded adults. 

SEMAR is currently developing a program to encourage families to give 
or to will a home to the church to enable the church to provide family size 

258 



homes for retarded persons all across the church without having to build or 
buy them. We believe that there are families in EVERY district of the 
United Methodist Church in the Southeastern Jurisdiction who could give - 
or leave in a will - a home to the church if they knew of the need. 

SEMAR is urging churches with elderly and/or visually impaired persons 
to have their Sunday Worship Service Bulletins enlarged for use by these 
persons. A copy machine with enlarging capabilities can provide this type 
of copy that visually impaired persons can read and thus participate in the 
church in worship. 

SEMAR has requested of the Hymnal Revision Committee that an edition of 
the proposed new hymnal be published with large type for use by visually 
impaired persons. There are over a million and a half such persons in the 
SEJ alone. 

Bob Pitzer/ Director of SEMAR/ has asked me to inform this Annual 
Conference that new curriculum resources for retarded persons is in the 
development stage and will be published and ready for distribution in early 
198b. Workshops are being planned as soon as the publication date is firm 
tor training workers and teachers how to use the new material with retarded 
persons. 

If your church is not totally accessible, we urge you to secure a copy 
of the book ASSESSI BILITY AUDIT published by the Board of Global Ministries 
and available through their Service Center in Cincinati, Ohio and do an 
audit in your church to identify and find ways of eliminating the barriers 
in your church that keep people with handicapping conditions from getting 
in and being a part of the church in fellowship or worship or study. 

SEMAR has recommended to the SEJ Council on Ministries and had the 
recommendation approved urging that NO meetings be held in the United 
Methodist Church in the Southeast beyond the local church in buildings or 
facilities that are not accessible. 

With more than 8 million persons with handicapping conditions within 
the bounds of the Southeastern Jurisdiction, approximately 700,000 of whom 
are menders of Untied Methodist families, we are grateful to have an agency 
liKe SEMAR to work with and on behalf of persons with handicapping 
conditions and their families - and to be, in a sense, the voice of and 
advocates for persons who look to the United Methodist Church for help 
that they may be a part of the church's fellowship - or find through the 
church ministries that will enable them to live a more normal, productive 
lite because the United Methodist Church cares. 

A. Kimsey King, Jr., Representative 

BOARD OF HIGHER EDUCATION AND CAME*US MINISTRY 

Bishop Minnick, delegates of the North Carolina Annual Conference, 
trienos and guests, it is exciting to be a part of the Board of Higher 
Education and Campus Ministry as we have launched into the new quadrennium. 
Louisburg, North Carolina Wesleyan and Methodist College are making forward 
strides that will make them stronger for the future; they are recruiting 
students and working to stay at the level of excellence that you expect 
f ro m the m . 

A concern we all share is that of the number of students at your 
colleges from North Carolina Methodism. You can help by taking an active 
role as a recruiter for the colleges by promoting Louisburg, Methodist and 
North Carolina Wesleyan. Encourage your minister and youth counselors to 
encourage your youth to visit one of your colleges, write for information 
or visit and talk with college recruiters at College Day at their high 
school. You and your youth will be enlightened to see the difference that 
a United Methodist College can make! 

This year has been one in which the Minis ter-in -Reside nee program again 
has been beneficial to the colleges and to the ministers who have 
participated in the program. The alcohol policy on your college campuses 
has not changed this year. The Student Day Offering has been increased to 
the point of our Scholarship Committee being able to later in this report 
to present two Merit Awards of $500.00 each. I would challenge you to help 
us give three awards next year. This would mean that as a Conference we 
would have an offering of $15,000 on December 29 or another Sunday in the 
year designated by the local church as United Methodist Student Day. 

The Black College Fund for 198 5 is down in the amount sent in by this 
time last year. I hope you will "catch up" on this fund before the end of 
the year. 

Beginning with the 1985 Charge Conference, your church will be asked to 
report as intormation to the Board of Higher Education the scholarshi ips 
that your church has to help your students in their college education. We 
also encourage every church to consider helping the General Scholarship 

259 



Funds of your colleges by making a gift to the Conference Advance Specials 
for Scholarship Fund. 

The Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry is proud to announce 
that grants from the General Board of Higher Education have been awarded to 
Louisburg College and Duke University for the year 1985-1986 to help 
celebrate the new quadrennium and the theme "Into the Third Century". 

The Board of Higher Education will be involved in a S. E. J. Training 
Event on September 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Louisburg College. 
The Reverend Dr. Robert Conn/ Assistant General Secretary of the Division 
of Higher EOucaton of Nashville, TN will come and lead in this training 
event which will equip our Board with new information for the new 
quadrennium. 

Our hope and goal is that more of you and your churches will support 
your colleges and students by prayer, gifts, and recruiting of future 
students. Private church-related colleges are in a un4que time frame. 
Some consider it a crisis - it is also a challenge. It is in our Methodist 
heritage to be involved in educating the mind, body, and soul. The 

challenge is that you and I continue to entrust our young men and women 
with the environment of the church-related campus to feed their hunger with 
the food of the mind and the soul.

Campus Ministries 

I bring you greetings from United Methodist students, faculty and 
administators on college campuses from across North Carolina. As chair pf 
the North Carolina State Commission on Campus ministry, I am pleased to 
report the worK of thirten Wesley Foundations and campus ministers serving 
on campuses with a total student population of nearly 130,000. 

Ana the story of campus ministry that you support is exciting: 

1. Students gathering in a Wesley Foundation for a fellowship meal and 
the worship of God. 

2. Campus ministers taking students from East Carolina University and 
the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on a mission to Mexico. 
There they worked with Mexican Methodists, painting and refurbishing two 
churches. 

3. A frightened college student, admitted to a hospital in a strange 
city, visited by one of our United Methodist Church chaplains. Suddenly a 
lonely hospital room is made more bearable by the visit of someone who is 
connected to a local Methodist Church. 

Campus ministry means Bible study; "a home away from home", a Christian 
witness with a State-supported University; a challenge to students to own 
their faith - to grow and mature spiritually as well as intellectually. 
The governor of Ohio; former North Carolina Supreme Court Justice, the 
Honorable Phil Carlton; numerous teachers, extension agents, preachers - 
all have one thing in common: they are products of Wesley Foundations. 

The North Carolina and Western North Carolina Annual Confereno 
provide the largest share of support for campus ministry - $413,059.00 in 
iyb5. Through State Commission meetings and annual campus ministry 
conferences with district superintendents, the work of campus ministry is 
reported and evaluated. I am glad to say that we have found a creativity, 
an energy, a spirit of evangelism and service that is indeed impressive. 

The North Carolina representatives to the State Commission are: Dr. 

Wallace H. Kirby, The Reverend Robert C. Redmond, The Reverend Susan 
Allred, Mrs. Estelle Hillman, The Reverend George Johnson, The Reverend 
William Presneil, The Reverend Murry DeHart, Jr., Dr. Brian Gentle, and Dr. 
Ernest Porter. One of our Conference's ministers, The Reverend Bill 
Sharpe, is Wesley Foundation Director at North Carolina State University. 
Another, The Reverend James Olive, serves as campus minister at Pembroke 
State University. The Reverend Mike Weber serves half-time as United 
Methodist Campus Minister at Duke University. 

I would like to thank members of the State Commission for their hard 
work. I also thank our campus ministers for their dedicated and able work 
done on baha If of Christ and the Church within higher education. Lastly, I ! 
thank you for your generous support of campus ministry. 

W. Joseph Mann, Chairperson, State Commission on Campus Ministry 

The Divinity School of Duke University 

Among the many resources which support Duke's commitment to excellence 
in theological education, none is more important than the strong reputation 
which the Divinity School continues to enjoy as a school of the church. In 
the 57 years since its founding, more than 3,000 graduates have gone forth 
to serve in thousands of congregations around the globe. We regard that 
reputation as a sacred trust. We believe fulfilling that trust requires 
continuing boldness and imagination if we are to prepare students for 
ministries equal to the challenges of these perplexing times. 

Duke's reputation for intellectual rigor in the service of the church 
and its ministry continues to grow, as evidenced by the strength and 
diversity of our student body. With the start of the fall 1984 semester, 
the Divinity School enrolled 392 students in its professional degree 
programs IM.Div., M.R.E. and Th.M.) and an additional 60 students in thel 
M. A. /Ph.D. program. Our students are men and women from 192 undergraduate 
schools, 22 denominations and 33 states. Women constitute 30% of the total, 
enrollment and black students constitute 10%. And at a time when manyl 
schools are being forced to lower their entrance requirements, the Divinityi 
School continues to maintain its historical commitment to high standards. 
The quality of our student body has never been better. 

While the accomplishments of its distinguished faculty and scholars, j 
and an aggressive international exchange program earn it increasing 
prominence in American theological education and the ecumenical world, the! 
Divinity School continues to enjoy strong regional, denominational andl 
alumni support as well. 

261 



In addition, the Divinity School's unique field education program makes 
it possible tor students to combine remunerative employment and vocational 
preparation. Funding from the Duke Endowment insures that what our 
students do by way of self-help while at Duke contributes as much to their 
competency in ministry as it does to their financial support. 

Finally, Duke Divinity School is most fortunate to be able to depend on 
the generous support of Unitd Methodists nationwide through the Ministerial 
Education Fund. These are some of the resources which account for Duke's 
margin of excellence and provide assurance that the Divinity School's 
ministry in the service of the church will endure. These resources, 

including the apportionment from the Ministerial Education Fund, have made 
possible several exciting developments in the life and work of Duke 
Divinity School this past year, and I want to share that good news with you. 
OUR FACULTY GROWS FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH 

We are pleased to celebrate the addition to our faculty of three 
scholars of the first rank. Stanley Hauerwas, a theologian and ethicist, 
Dan O. Via, Jr., a New Testament scholar, and William H. Willimon, Minister 
to the University, are exciting additions to our community. A member of 
the theological faculty of the University of Notre Dame since 1974, Dr. 
Hauerwas has been named professor of Theological Ethics at Duke. Dr. Via, 
who has been teaching at the University of Virginia, has joined us as 
professor of New Testament. And Dr. Willimon returns to our faculty as 
professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry after four years as a 
pastor in South Carolina. 

Dr. Willimon 's earlier service on the Divinity School faculty marked 
mm as one who has much to contribute to our students and the life of the 
churcn. We are thankful for his return. I am also happy to announce the 
appointment of Dr. Paula E. Gilbert to the faculty effective July 1, 1985. 
Dr. Gilbert is currently director of Admissions and Student Affairs. She 

is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church and will teach in 
American Christianity while continuing to serve in her administrative 
capacity. These additions bring to nine the number of faculty members 
appointed during the past two years. 
DUKE HOSTS FIRST SOUTHEAST CLERGYWOMEN' S CONSULTATION 

United Methodist clergywomen from all over the south gathered at the 
Divinity School for the first Clergywomen ' s Consultation on March 4-7, 
1985. This was the first time United Methodist women in ministry from all 
parts of the United Methodist Church's Southeastern Jurisdiction had met 
together as a group, and we were quite pleased to see close to 200 attend. 
The Reverend Susan Vogel, dean of students at St. Paul's School of 
Theology, delivered the keynote address on "Fibers of Ministry - Love, 
Power and Justice". Other plenary sessions explored the history of women 
in the South, women's spirituality, and the appointment system in the 
United Methodist Church. The Consultation also offered clergywomen an 
opportunity to attend several workshops, as well as daily worship services 
featuring women preachers. 
DIVINITY STUDENTS SPONSOR SYMPOSIUM ON EVANGELISM AND MISSIONS 

World and national leaders in the field of Christian missions converged 
on the Duke University campus on January 15 for a three-day symposium on 
evangelism and missions. The symposium was an occasion for serious 

examination of the theology and methodology of mission. Major speakers 

during the three-day event included: 

- Bishop Ole E. Borgen (B.D.,'62), United Methodist Bishop of Northern 
Europe and president-elect of the United Methodist Council of Bishops 

Dr. Everett L. Hunt, President of Overseas Missions Society 
International 

- Dr. Rene O. Bideaux (B.D.,'58), Deputy General Secretary of the 
United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries 

- The Reverend H. T. Maclin, Executive Director of the Mission Society 
for United Methodists 

CONTINUING EDUCATION FROM DISTRICT SEMINARS TO INTERNATIONAL STUDY 

Under the leadership of Joe Mann we are carrying on a remarkable 
program of continuing education for ministry and invite your interest and 
participation. We are particularly committed to relationship with and 
understanding of the world church. Acccordingly , we offer extensive 

opportunities for students, alumni and others to learn about international 
issues, including seminars in Mexico with McMurry Richey, China with 
Creighton Lacy and the cities of the early church (Paul's travels) with 
Moody Smith. 

The Divinity School's long-standing commitment to international studies 
has earned it the signal honor of hosting the first two scholars from the 
People's Republic of China permitted to study religion in the United 
States. Ms. Deng Wen Wen and Mr. Yen Chang You, members of the faculty of 
the National Academy of the Social Sciences, arrived on the Divinity School 

262 



campus last tall. They are pursuing studies of the role of religion in 
American life and culture. 

These are exciting times at Duke Divinity School as we seek to give our 
best in the service of the church and its ministries. As a part of the 
Diviity School's extended family of friends and supporters, the North 
Carolina Annual Conference is one of our chief partners in that enterprise 
and our greatest strength. Your loyal support through the Ministerial 
Education Fund and your continuing involvement in the life of the Divinity 
School is the envy of the other professional schools in the university and 
a source of great pride for us. Together we are committed to advancing the 
life and work of the church through a well-prepared ministry. For more 

intormation about these or any of our programs, please contact the Divinity 
School, Duke University, Durham, NC 27706 (919) 684-3234.

Louisburg College 

Your college at Louisburg continues to be a first class United 
Methodist two-year institution, and we are proud of our achievements. 
Recently, when the United Methodist Women were on our campus for the 
Christian Personhood Retreat, one of them said to me, "How does Louisburg 
College do what it does?" I replied that quality comes from a caring 
raculty and staff emphasizing the small details as well as the larger 
components of academic life. If we are to meet the needs of our total 
campus community, then we have to look beyond the usual expectations of 
colleges, to provide the extra ingredients. And we do. 

The academic year just completed was a good one, with continued full 
enrollment and a balanced budget. Endowment monies, especially for 

scholarships, continue to grow; and we are in better position to meet 
student financial need. This capability is essential for us as we 

anticipate reduced federal support in the years ahead. For the 1985-86 
year, however, there will be financial aid available for all students who 
qualify on a need basis. Let me lift forward especially the extension of 
the Franklinton United Methodist Church to Louisburg College in 
establishing the Richard Cheatham Scholarship to provide annual monies for 
a student or students attending the college. 1 1 is a prime example of what 
local churches can do. Our 1985 Commencement speaker was Bishop C. P. 
MinnicK, Jr., who challenged our graduates "for such a time as this", using 
the Book of Esther as his text. 

As we look toward the 1985-86 year, we again anticipate full 
enrollment. Freshmen applications are 12% ahead of the same time a year 
ago, with freeshman deposits paid almost 30% ahead. The academic program 
continues to be strengthened, especially in the Science area with the 
addition of two new Ph. D. faculty. Construction is now underway on the 
long-awaited Clifton L. Benson Chapel and Religious Life Center, made 
possible by the dedicated work of the Raleigh District United Methodist 
Men. Funding has reached the 75% level, and we have initiated the building 
phase as a venture in faith that United Methodists in our Conference will 
help us secure the remaining monies necessary. 

In 1987 Louisburg College will celebrate the 200th anniversary of its 
date of founding, and we look forward to having all the people of the North 
Carolina Conference mark the occasion with us. Although we cannot claim to 
be all things to all people or to be a campus immune to the social problems 
and concerns of society, we are in a sense an oasis, in that we try with 
understanding and compassion to meet the needs of students who come our way 
in the manner the Church would expect us to follow. Church-rela tedness is 
the basic plank in our missional foundation, and we thrive because the 
Church is our guide. 

We conclude this report with an affirmation of support for one of our 
dole staff members. Dr. Thomas S. Yow, who has been my administrative 
assistant since 1977, will be leaving immediately following Annual 
Conference to assume the presidency of Martin College in Tennessee, a 
United Methodist two-year college similar to Louisburg. Although we and 

263 



all in our Conference will miss him, we take this occasion to express 
appreciation to him for all that he has done and to wish him well in his 
new administrative role. He is immenently qualified to assume it. 

J. Allen Norris, Jr., President 

Methodist College 

Bishop Minnick, members of the Annual Conference, ladies and gentlemen. 
Many pleasant experiences have occurred in the twenty months that I have 
had the privilege of serving at Methodist College. Among the most pleasant 
of these experiences has been the opportunity to get to know more closely 
the Methodists of North Carolina - lay and clergy. I have especially 

appreciated the invitations to preach in your churches, to speak to 
meetings of Methodist Men, Methodist Women and Youth groups. Those 

opportunities to be in your churches have been a joy indeed. 

The challenge that I face in this report is to convey the sense of 
growth and confidence that exists in the Methodist College community 
without overstating the case. Good things have occurred in enrollment, 
linances, staff and curriculum. But, we are not yet out of the woods. An 
accurate report requires that I be positive, but realistic. 

Concerning enrollment, this past fall saw the largest freshman class in 
many years. Our overall enrollment was up twenty percent in the day program 
and our evening enrollment almost oouDleo. In the spring semester our 
total enrollment was 1,035, surpassing 1,000 for the first time in more 
tha n a decade. 

Our most challenging recruitment problem continues to be in the 
residential area. This past year we increased our residential enrollment by 
13% over the preceeding year. At the present time our applications for new 
residential students are 54% above last year and we project that our 
residential enrollment will be up by about 15% over last year. Even with a 
fifteen percent increase we still will have many empty beds. 

One of the recruitment problems that we face, and one with which you 
can help us, is concern on the part of many prospective students about the 
cost of attending Methodist College. Quite simply, many students think 
they cannot afford our college and never bother to consider us. And those 
students are misled. I t is our goal at Methodist College that no student 
be denied the opportunity to attend Methodist College because of lack of 
financial resources. Our goal, which we are very close to achieving, is 
that we will provide a financial aid package that will meet the NEED of any 
North Carolina student who desires to attend Methodist College. There are 
Federal grants, some of which reach $2,000, State grants which will provide 
$y50, and the various college scholarship programs which assist students 
who lack resources. In addition, we guarantee at Methodist College a 
campus job to any residential student who desires to work. In such a job a 
student can earn up to $850 per year. In short, we can find a way to make 
it possible lor almost any North Carolina student to afford to attend our 
college. But not everyone is aware of this opportunity and you can help us 
in our communications problem. 

The second area that I would like to mention concerns the financial 
health of the college. The generous support of the Annual Conference has 
helped to put the college in its best financial shape in many years, 
perhaps in our history. Our alumni giving is up, both in dollars and in 
percentages, and this year we received a $600,000 gift to support the 
economics and business program at Methodist College, a program which is now 
being expanded. For the first time in our history giving to Methodist 
College in a single year exceeded 1.3 million dollars. 

The scholarship program which you created last year in appreciation for 
the worK of Bill Lowdermilk has generated over $12,000 for an endowed 
scholarshp. The college and the Annual Conference continues to benefit 
greatly from Bill's dedicated efforts. Bill is a symbol of the numerous 
dedicated people whose hard work at Methodist College is a major reason for 
our existence and success. 

We received this year the first Federal grant in our history. This 

grant supports a special program for first generation college students. 

In the financial management area we have made some steps in attacking 
our maintenance problems. We have been able to do more painting and more 
tree and shrub planting than in all of the past decade. But as you can see 
by looking closely we have left many roofs unrepaired and potholes 
unf illea. We are blessed again this year by the volunteer assistance of 
about 40 ministers who painted for two days in our residence halls. This 
program, organized by Tom Holtsclaw of Camp Ground Church was a major 
advance. I don't know which I enjoyed more, seeing the newly painted rooms 
or hearing the singing that accompanied the painting.

Two of the Methodist College faculty will attend very competitive 
National seminars this summer. The fact that we have two people at these 
much sought after positions testifies to the quality of our faculty. Dr. 

Sue Kimball will be at Columbia University studying Chaucer and Dr. Robert 
Christian will be at Stanford University studying romantic literature. 
Both of these teachers are very involved members of Hay Street United 
Methodist Church. 

The appointment of the first full-time Vice-president for Development 
at Methodist College in about ten years was announced recently. Gene 

Clayton, a member of Haymount United Methodist Church, and the Athletic 
Director here tor many years will assume primary responsibility for our 
efforts to secure a broader base of support. 

I want to close my report with a short statement of my understanding of 
the mission of Methodist College. It involves two parts. First, we want 
to be a strong academic institution. We want to teach well those skills 
ana wisdom that help to make an educated person. But we want to do more 
than train the mind - we want to inspire the spirit. We want to produce 
BETTER HUMAN BEINGS. In this we fulfill our mission as your college - for 
like you, the church, we want to call men and women to more noble lives 
marxed by caring, concern and commitment. We believe that this mission is 
important, and we appreciate your support in this venture. 

M. Elton Hendricks, President 

North Carolina Wesleyan College 

Bishop Minnick, delegates and guests this has been another good 

year for North Carolina Wesleyan College. More than 1100 students have 
been enrolled in one or more courses. 

Our off-campus programs in Raleigh at Athens Drive High school, in 
Goldsboro at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, and in Jacksonville and New 
Bern have provided degree completion opportunities for non-traditional 
students. These off-campus sites were visited by our regional accrediting 
agency, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and received a 
stamp of approval. 

The most popular programs of study at Wesleyan continue to be Business 
Administration, Accounting, Computer Science, and Hotel and Food Service 
Management. New faculty have been employed in each of these areas to meet 
student demand. 

We are currently in the midst of preparing a long-range plan to see us 
into the 1990s. An aggressive marketing effort will be included to help us 
recruit more North Carolina Conference Methodist youth at Wesleyan. (Our 

College is best known by those who travel 1-95 and 301 from New York to 
Florida. Few persons traveling within the state have the occasion to pass 
our campus. ) 

This year we have been involved in expensive maintenance of putting new 
roofs on buildings, resurfacing all the paving and replacing worn air 
condi tioners . 

We hope that you will make plans to attend an old-fashioned camp 
meeting on our campus next spring (May 23-25). The Board of Evangelism is 
making plans for the event now and we invite all of you to make 
reservations and join us next May. 

One of the greatest opportunities and the greatest needs we have is for 
scholarship funds. We appreciate the gift from the Raleigh District. Our 
General Board of Higher Education will name 2,000 Bicentennial Scholars 
from among graduating high school seniors this year and next. 

Your local church can name a Bicentennial Scholar by pledging $1,000 
toward that student's education. When the student applies and is accepted 
at North Carolina Wesleyan College, we pledge another $1,000 toward his 
expenses. If he or she is chosen as a Bicentennial Scholar, the General 
Board also puts up $1,000. That makes $3,000 the first year. 

Let me urge you to put $1,000 in your local church budget and encourage 
your youth to apply for designation as Bicentennial Scholars. If accepted, 
they can receive an additiional scholarship of $2,000 from other sources. 

This program can help our Conference colleges and make church-related 
higher education affordable to young people in your church. 

Even if the Bicentennial Scholarship is not possible, other forms of 
financial aid are available. Please encourage your youth to visit Wesleyan 
and the other Conference colleges before making a final decision. 

Wesleyan has always been known for an excellent academic program. Our 
faculty are recognized scholars and master teachers. Through a new 

cooperative education program, many of our students gain valuable 
on-the-job experience in their field of study while still in college. This 
is a built-in job placement program, for most continue to work after 

26 5 



graduation tor the tirms which employed them as students. 

This merging of meaningful employment and education provides practical 
work experience concurrent with classroom theories. Many of our students 
are employed in the Research Triangle Park; others work in the National 
institute of Health ana other governmental agencies in Washington as well 
as in local industries. They earn a portion of their educational expenses 
while learning on the job and in the classroom. 

A lot of good things are happening at Wesleyan. Our athletic teams 

have had another winning year. Some fine new professionals have been 
engaged to strengthen our student life program and the campus is buzzing 
with activity. 

Bring a car load of your young people to see Wesleyan. We will be 

happy to have you as our guests for a few hours or a weekend. It is a fine 
college and worthy of your continuing interest and support. 

S. Bruce Petteway, President 

BOARD OF LAITY 

In THE BOOK OF DISCIPLINE, Par. 104, we read: "The heart of Christian 
ministry is Christ's ministry of outreaching love. Christian ministry is 
the expression of the mind and mission of Christ by a community of 
Christians that demonstrates a common life of gratitude and devotion, 
witness and service, celebration and discipleship. All Christians are 

called to this ministry of servanthood in the world to the glory of God and 
tor human fulfillment." The task of the Board of the Laity is to assist 
lay persons to be effective ministers. To this end several important 

programs were implemented this past year. 

District Lay Rallies were held in each of the 12 districts with a total 
attendance of 8,281. This is the second largest attendance recorded since 
the rallies began in 1955. Speakers included Bishop C. P. Minnick, Jr., 
Dr. W. E. Hammond, Dr. Will Willimon, Dr. Wallace Chappell, Dr. Thomas 
Langtora, and Judge J. Taylor Phillips. The rallies featured spirited 

singing, the recognition of the outstanding high school seniors, and the 
presentation of the district Lay Person of the Year. The district 

Committee of the Laity, which is representative of all lay persons, men, 
women and youth, planned and participated in the rallies. 

January Workshops continued to increase in quality and quantity. Every 
year we announce a new attendance record and this year is no exception. 
Participating this year were 4,103 persons. The New Bern District took the 
prize with a total attendance of 438 and an amazing 80 persons in one 
class! The 1986 January Workshops will include classes for the 

administrative officers of the church, including the Committee on Finance, 
trustees, children, youth, young adult, and adult coordinators, and United 
Methodist Men, United Methodist Women and United Methodist Youth Fellowship. 

The Lay Speaker program was changed considerably by the 1984 General 
Conference. There are now two levels of certification. The first is that 
of Local Church Lay Speaker. Persons who achieve this distinction have had 
Administrative Board or Council or Charge Conference approval and then 
completed a 10-hour basic training course. Basic courses have been held in 
most of our districts this year with the new materials being used in most 
cases. Emphasis is given to three aspects of speaking, leading and caring. 
The second level is that of Certified Lay Speaker;a local church lay leader 
achieves this level by participating in an advanced 10-hour training course 
after effective service in his/her local church. Advanced courses have been 
held at Conference Summer School and in several of the districts. Advanced 
courses will also be offered at Conference Summer School this August. 

Each year the Board of the Laity recognizes a Lay Person of the Year. 
We are proud to call the names of these special district representatives, 
who collectively represent more than 500 years in service to the United 
Metnodist Church: Burlington - Lester Ridenhour of Front Street UMC in 
Burlington, Durham - Ross Townes of Asbury Temple UMC in Durham, Elizabeth 
City - Mrs. Margaret Saunders of First UMC in Elizabeth City, Fayetteville 
- Mrs. Alma McRae of John Wesley in Fayetteville, Goldsboro - Miss Daisy 
Young of Centenary UMC in Smithtield, Greenville - Mrs. Carolyn Harris of 
Providence UMC, Swan Quarter Charge, New Bern - Grier and Martha Garrick of 
Trinity UMC in Jacksonville, Raleigh - Col. Roy L. Holley of St. Mark's UMC 
in Raleigh, Rockingham - Mrs. Alice T. Nelson of St. Peters UMC in Hamlet, 
Rocky Mount - Mrs. Ophelia Taylor of West Nash UMC in Wilson, Sanford - 
Larry and Lynda Newsome of Southern Pines UMC in Southern Pines, and 
Wilmington - Wade Pierce of Pine Valley UMC in Wilmington. 

Last year Robert and Leiotte Long of Roxboro shared this honor. The 

Board has reviewed the list of those honored as district lay persons of the 
year. They are all capable and enthusiastic representatives of the laity 
of our churches. The 1985 Lay Person of the Year is Mrs. Margaret Saunders 

266 



of the Elizabeth City District and President of our NC Conference United 
Methodist Women. Margaret has been a leader at First UMC for more than 35 
years. She is Chairperson of the Work Area on Missions , and has led her 
local church in mission studies and the underwriting of financial support 
tor a missionary family. She teaches "Monday School" at Guardian Care and 
at Winslow Nursing Home. She is an active member of her church school 
class, the Council on Ministries and Administrative Board. On the district 
level she has served as Youth Coordinator, Chairperson of Education, and as 
Vice-President and then President of United Methodist Women. She is on the 
District Council on Ministries. On the Conference level she is a member of 
the Council on Ministries, Board of the Laity, Board of Missions, 
Conference Summer School Board of Directors, and The Methodist Foundation. 
She is a trustee of the Methodist Retirement Homes, and a member of the 
Edenton Children's Home advisory board. She is a member of the 

Jurisdictional Council on Ministries and was delegate to the 1984 General 
and Jurisdictional Conferences. 

J. Allen Norris, Jr., Chairperson 

Report of the Conference Lay Leader 

Recently we have marked a rite of passage in our United Methodist 
Church, as we have recalled our roots planted some 200 years ago. The 

importance of a rite of passage is not simply the acts of remembering and 
celebrating, but also and probably most significantly, what it causes us to 
see in ourselves and in our Church for the present and the future. 

WHAT CAN WE BECOME as the Church in our world of today and the 
foreseeable years ahead? This is the real question we must ask ourselves, 
clergy and laity alike, as we interact in ministry to ourselves and to 
those around us in the world parish. Some are even questioning whether the 
Church we have celebrated can continue to exist as we know it, what with 
all the pulls and strains upon it. Yet we have set a goal to double our 
membership within a relatively short time span! To accomplish this goal 
will require spiritual enrichment, commitment, and diligence in effort; and 
we as a Church must set our sights accordingly. 

1 have used as an illustration on several occasions the Church as a 
"filling station", wherein we as a people of faith join in worship and 
fellowship to renew ourselves, and the Church as a "diving board", to 
propel us to become true disciples in spreading the Gospel and serving 
those round about us. Surely our Church must and will be both, as we enter 
the third century with what will be required. 

When we look at the 1984-85 year, we can see encouraging signs that 
spiritual enrichment, commitment, and diligence in effort have been our 
motivation to Church advancement. We have been blessed by the challenges 
in spiritual growth extended by Bishop C. P. Minnick, Jr., as he has been 
with us in all twelve districts and in many of our local churches. We have 
reached new attendance levels in district lay rallies and in the January 
Workshops. We have seen our Conference Summer School continue to be an 
excellent experience for training leadership and deepening our faith. The 
Lay Speaker Program has received renewed emphasis, as we continue to seek 
to provide new leadership, not only for worship but for church school 
teaching and sharing with one another. United Methodist Women, United 

Methodist Men, and United Methodist Youth activities have received emphasis 
and recognition; and we have increasing part iciaption in all three. Yes, 

we can see good signs that our Conference is advancing on all fronts, and 
these signs should give us fortitude for what lies ahead. 

Our challenges and needs are many, as we seek to strengthen our 
ministry to young adults and to our growing older adults. Increased 

membership will require our concerted effort to provide more and better 
programs to meet these growing populations within our midst, and our 
failure to recognize and follow through accordingly will lend credence to 
those who say that the role of the Church is a lessening one in our 
Society. We must also address effectively the social, economic, and 
political issues prevalent in our time and see that the Church as we know 
it and want it to become is a positive factor in reasonable change. And 

our steps toward inclusiveness must become broadened ones if we are to 
secure the faith that has brought us to this point. 

So let us observe our significant rite of passage in continued 
celebration, but in wise assessment of who we are and what we are all 
about. As Conference Lay Leader I compliment our progress, but call on us 
as a Church to renew our commitments and dedicate ourselves to extension 
beyond where we have been to reach toward meeting the needs and challenges 
that are clearly our task. 

J. Allen Norris, Jr., Conference Lay Leader

; United Methodist Men 

United Methodist Men continue to be the fastest growing segment of our 
church. It is support from leaders like Dr. Allen Norris, Conference Lay 
Leader, and Mrs. Margaret Saunders, President of United Methodist Women, 
and so many other members of the laity and clergy that we continue to grow 
I both in numerical and spiritual strength. 

As we look back at what United Methodist Men have accomplished we can 
be proud of our organization. Our men have helped to raise the money for a 
chapel at Louisburg College, a parsonage within the Sanford District and 
are worKing to raise money for a swimming pool for Camp Rockfish. These 

stand out as district projects but are dwarfed by the individual projects 
that United Methodist Men have accomplished in their own churches. 

We can be proud that very district now has either an appointed or 
elected president and 42* of our church have an active United Methodist 
Mens Fellowship. 

Our Conference ranks third in the nation in percentage of churches with 
a charter and fifth in the nation in the number of chartered groups. 

April 12-14 we held our first ever, men's retreat at Methodist College. 
Our program got off to a great start on Friday night with a training 
session for Prayer Covenant groups and information about the Upper Room 
Prayer Ministry which is one of our national projects. James K. Wagner, 
Executive Director of the Upper Room Prayer and Healing Ministries was our 
speaker. 

Saturday morning started with a morning watch lead by Rudy Hillman, 
Conference Vice-President. After singing, lead by Roger Searles, Bishop C. 
P. Minnick, Jr., lead us in worship. After lunch we heard from Jim Snead, 
Assistant General Secretary of the General Board of Discipleship and Tom 
Mallonee, United Methodist Mens President of the Western North Carolina 
Conference and the Southeastern Jurisdiction. 

Then we had two sets of interest groups and after supper a video 
presentation by Dr. Ross Freeman on a new program, "A Spiritual Journey for 
Men" which will be introduced at Purdue in July. 

Our meeting ended on Sunday with a most meaningful Love Feast lead by 
Dr. Norris and an inspiring message by R. H. "Red" Bond, President of the 
Memphis Conference United Methodist Men. 

The men attending the meeting voted overwhelmingly to hold the retreat 
again next year the weekend after Easter at Methodist College. 

We have adopted the theme of M A N which stands for Meeting Anothers 
Needs and the theme has been picked up for the Southeastern Jurisdiction 
Convo '87 - they are using the theme M A N in the Third Century. This 

event will take place in April of 1987 at Lake Junaluska. 

On July 12-14 of this year we will hold our National Congress of United 
Methodist Men at Purdue with many from our Conference planning to attend. 

The Conference Summer School, August 2-4 will have a course for United 
Methodist Men led by Mr. Fay Smith, Director of Volunteers in Discipleship 
for United Methodist Men. 

As United Methodist Men we must take advantage of the opportunities and 
meet the challenge of our third century - How well we do this may very well 
shape the destiny of our Church. 

Charles L. Sauls, President 

United Methodist Women 

United Methodist women, too, have marked a rite of passage, not only 
recalling 200 years of Methodism, but also 100 years of women organized for 
mission. 

As we look to the future, United Methodist Women of the North Carolina 
conference have adopted "Visions of Shalom" as the Quadrennial theme. The 
dictionary defines vision as "the ability to perceive something not 
actually visible". As we envision Shalom - peace, wholeness, unity - we 
realize it is the embodiment of Christ's concern for all humanity. 

The year 1984-85 has brought many opportunities for learning, for 
spiritual growth, for nurturing the seeds of peace and wholeness. 
Attendance at Regional School, Conference Summer School, New Officer 
Training in New York and Chicago as well as our own "Do It Day" have 
provided both knowledge and inspiration for carrying on the work. 

Our Annual Meeting in October was planned around the theme "To Love Is 
to Risk". Bernice Johnson who was completing her service on the Women's 
Division as Vice-President for Mission and Membership Development, was the 
speaker. She challenged us to do more than talk about love: to risk 

268 



reaching out to those who need to experience the love of Christ through us. 

In February the Women's Division conducted a Christian Social Relations 
Interpretation Workshop for our Conference and District Officers. In March 
lb9 young women attended the 39 and Under Event. This age group is alive 
with enthusiasm and an eagerness to learn. 

The historical records and artifacts of the Women's Missionary 
organizations of our conference have been placed in the archives in the 
Davis Memorial Liorary at Methodist College. 

Interest and enthusiasm was everywhere evident in the recent Personhood 
Retreat at Louisburg College where Elise Eslinger led us down the "Roads to 
Shalom" ana renewed commitment. 

The Treasurer's Report for 1984 showed a total of $313,863 sent to the 
Women's Division. In addition $12,000 went to support the work of our 
three Conierence projects, Robeson County Church and Community Center, the 
Harnett County Project, and the Walnut Terrace Child Development Center. 
Recently $1,000 was sent to the Raleigh Board of Missions that we might 
share in the ministry of Motlalepula Chabaku in the larger Walnut Terrace 
Community. $500 was given to the Bill Lowdermilk Scholarlship Fund in 
appreciation for his ministry of love and service. Twelve scholarships 

were awarded to women attending our Methodist colleges as an investment in 
the future leadership of our Church. 

We have set as goals the organization of at least 36 new units in 
churches that do not now have an organized unit of United Methodist Women, 
and a 10% increase in membership throughout the Conference. We continue to 
strive toward inclusi veness. We remember with thanksgiving Mollye Hughes 
Briley who worked throughout her lifetime to accomplish this. As a Church 
and as United Methodist Women we must continue to work for peace and 
justice, for concerns of the elderly, child and spouse abuse, migrant 
ministry, alcohol and drug abuse, prison ministries. We must continue an 
emphasis on Fooa, Land and Justice, realizing that world hunger is more 
than the hunger for food. 

As we look to the future under the able and inspiring leadership of our 
Bishop Carlton P. Minnick, may we become a network of Christians - United 
Methodist Women, United Methodist Men, United Methodist youth - working 
together to heal the brokeness of our world out of an active and 
compassionate concern tor all people. 

Margaret R. Saunders, President 

United Methodist Youth 

A very successful year is coming to an end and as president of the 
North Carolina Conference Youth, I am pleased to say that all of our goals 
have been met it not surpassed. 

The Youth Service Fund (YSF) is money raised by the youth, spent by the 
youth to benefit the youth. The YSF goal for 1984 was $13,500. The total 
amount raised was $17,900, which makes us the fourth largest fund-raiser in 
the nation among conference youth. Being near the bottom seven years ago, 
the North Carolina Conference Youth has made its way up in the national YSF 
standings. A definite success! I would like to thank the conference youth 
treasurer, Jim Benedict, for a job well done. However, all the youth of 
the Conference deserve to be thanked. Thank you. 

Last January, the YSF Task Force met to set next year's fund-raising 
goal and to decide how to use the money raised this year. Our new goal is 
$18,500, an amoitious 37% increase over our 1984 goal based on our success 
this year. We support many IN and OUT of Conference programs such as: a 

drug addict recuperation center in Brazil, and a chapel at Louisburg 
College. The Brazilian project is just starting. We are helping with the 
initial construction costs. The chapel at Louisburg College has been given 
monies to provide the altar railing. There are many more projects ranging 
from uay care type programs to missionary programs. I stress the 

importance of the YSF and the need for help in fund-raising. Please 

encourage the youth of your local church to become involved and increase 
their support of this much needed youth fund. 

The Youth Council of the North Carolina Conference has the 
responsibility to plan youth events for all the youth of the Conference. 
We have had great success in planning events in the past and this has 
sparked many new ideas for future activities. A youth work team went to 
Jamaica last year to do missionary work. As a member of that team, I can 
assure you that the experience was both eductional and inspirational. The 
experience gave each team member the opportunity to practice, in a very 
meaningtul way, Christ's teachings. To continue the new tradition, similar 
teams will be going to Costa Rica and to the west side of New York City 
this year. I am certainly looking forward to the Costa Rica project in 

269 



. 



August. 

Other new programs include a youth tour of the Holy Land and, with the 
cooperation ot the Camping Ministries, a youth white water rafting retreat. 

Another area I would like to address is involvement in youth events. 
Me are pleased with the number of minority youth who have participated. I 
would like to see their participation increase, as well as the 
participation of all the youth of the Conference. The best way to see the 
numoers grow is for you, as ministers and lay persons, to support your 
local and Conference youth programs. I especially urge you to encourage 
the youth ot your local church to become more involved in Conference level 
activities. Let the youth know of the great opportunities they have to 
contribute to the lite ot the church. Together we can build an even more 
worthwhile youth ministries program. 

Lastly, I would like to thank all of the Conference youth officers for 
all their hard work and dedication, and the adults who have actively 
supported the Conference youth, specifically, Mike Safley, Associate 
Director of CCOM for Youth and Young Adult Ministries. 

Steven w. Hutchins, President 

BOARD OF MISSIONS 

When we hear the name Board of Missions, we must not think only of 
missionaries or lands in other countries. Missions is the outreach of the 
church, here and abroad, from work teams of local churches in their own 
neighborhood, to new church development, to studying in small groups about 
other cultures and peoples, to giving to appeals for hunger and relief of 
human need. 
THE AFRICA CHURCH GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT FUND 

In 1984, $36,179.89 was given to this fund. Our Conference chose to 
give $1,000.00 tor every 150 years or $150,000.00 to Africa Church Growth 
and Development as part of the celebration of the anniversary of Melville 
B. Cox going to Africa. The total that has been given now is $112,581.04. 
CHURCH AND COMMUNITY 

Grants have been given to rural and urban churches, and the Church and 
Community Center and the Walnut Terrace Project totaling over $90,000.00. 
HiNTON RURAL LIFE CENTER 

One ot our own ministers in our Conference is now executive director of 
the Hinton Rural Life Center. Our Board of Missions has recommended that 
$4,000.00 be given annually to the center to support the program as our 
part as the North Carolina Annual Conference. 
THE ADVANCE SPECIAL 

1. We are trying to limit to a maximum of four, the Advance Specials in 
any category other than Conference Advance Specials. 

2. We are trying to hold before the church the need for missionary 
salary support. 

3. We want to lift up at the Fall Charge Conferences that particular 
country related to the churchwide study that has been scheduled for that 
year. 

Our Giving to Advance Specials for 1984 was: 

World $194,224.66 

National 21,206.90 

UMCOR 630,442.30 (includes tornado & hurricane relief $352,103.76) 

Conference 70,522.43 

TOTAL $916,396.29 

This was a record year of giving in the Conference. Giving was down in 
National and World Advance; however, the response of churches to the 
Tornado and Hurricane Crisis in our Conference and the Ethiopian and 
African Hunger Crisis giving to the advance almost tripled over 1983. In 

1983, giving to the Advance was $326,070.23. The response in 1984 was 
$91b,396.29. This is an increase of $590,326.06. 
ITINERATION 

The missionaries who itinerated through our Conference are: Angelina 
Parma, Ronald Schooler and Jack and Barbara Theis. 
MISSION STUDIES 

In 1984 there were 587 mission studies reported using the guidelines. 
There were other studies held which were not conducted by the particular 
guidelines. 
CHURCH GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT 

These district teams have been organized, and they are all in the 
process of meeting to determine their actions they need to take to assist 
the churches in their respective districts.

The Board ot Missions gives to the building needs of our Ethnic 
Minority Local Churches as well as to the program needs. 

We extend a word of thanks to Mrs. Julia McLean Williams for her very 
able leadership ot our North Carolina Annual Conference Board of Missions. 
She served in parts ot two quadrenniums and you could not help but feel her 
strong devotion to this area of ministry of our Lord's church. She 

resigned her position this past February to assume her new position with 
the Mission Society. We want to grow as the Board of Missions of our 
Conference following the mandate of our Lord, "Go ye into all the world". 
Our task is great, but He makes us ready by preparing the way and going 
with us, strengthening us as we go forth in His Name.

COMMISSION ON OUTDOOR AND CAMPING MINISTRIES 

OUR PHILOSOPHY OF CAMPING 

The camping ministry of the United Methodist Church provides an 
experience in Christian community that values persons as creations of God 
ana nelps them to understand and appreciate their worth in relationship to 
God, others, self, and all living things. In these relationships, and 

especially in natural settings, spiritual growth and renewal are amplified 
by the revelation of God's Spirit at work in others and in self through 
rhythms of encounter and apartness, activity and reflection.

OUR CAMPS 

CAMP CHESTNUT RIDGE is located on a beautiful tree-studded ridge among 
the hills of Orange County just off 1-85 near Hillsborough. Here small 

group camping takes place with 12 campers working with two counselors. 
Emphasis is placed on living with others while growing together in 
Christian life and faith. Horseback riding is a special opportunity 

ottered at the Ridge. Mrs. Jan Thomas is the manager/director, Route 1,

Resident summer camping is available at Chestnut Ridge, Don-Lee, and 
Rockfish. you can take groups to these three camps the year round for 
weekena retreats. Day camping and picnicking are available at all four of 
our camps. Local churches are encouraged to see camping in the out-of-doors 
as an ideal setting for the development of Christian community and 
character tor worship, for growth, for personal development, for the 
development of one's spiritual life, and for developing an awareness of our 
responsibility as stewards of God's creation. Your church, your UMYF, your 
UMW, your UMM, or your Sunday school class from your church can adopt a 
cabin at one of our camps or come and help with a work day at a camp in the 
spring.

The Commission on Outdoor and Camping Ministries was authorized by the 
1983 NC Annual Conference, and came into being in June of 1984 with 25 
memoers. Local committees were organized for the first time in 1984 for 
all tour camps, and work camps have been held at each camp. A fine 

resident camping program has been planned for 1985 and 1986. 

Proposals for a master plan and a capital fund drive will be presented 
to the 1986 NC Annual Conference. Moving from a very detailed study that 
was done of our camping ministries in 1982, we are presently working on a 
master plan for camping that will carry us into the 21st Century. Details 
of this plan will be presented to the NC Annual Conference in 1986 for the 
conference's approval, and approval will be sought for a Capital Fund Drive 
to be conducted across the conference in 1987.

COMMISSION ON RELIGION AND RACE 

In keeping with our role as the monitoring and advocating agent of the 
church, the Commission on Religion and Race is continually viewing and 
reviewing the many levels of the NC Conference where racial awareness and 
inclusi veness is still lacking. 

Our commitment to the Missional Priority is one way of assessing our 
commitment to racial pluralism and inclusi veness and we must keep before us 
the tact that, "The work of Religion and Race is the task of the whole 
church". 

27 2 



We applaud our bishop and offer our support to assist in determining 
the depth of the commitment of our Conference in the area of 
open -itineracy. 

Several strides have been made toward inclusiveness; however, it is 
felt that the Conference has not yet benefited by the experiences ethnic 
minorities bring to it. Our perception of our progress differs 

significantly between ethnic minorities and Caucasian persons. 

The NC Conference is not utilizing its ethnic minority leadership, in 
fact, some ethnic minority persons are over-utilized thus depriving others 
of opportunities to serve. 

The commission has sent teams of its members to visit and monitor the 
number of ethnic minorities represented in our institutions and agencies. 
The following is submitted by way of statistics: Blacks - two 
administration, three staff persons, 36 maintenance and one trustee. Native 
Americans - one staff person, 13 maintenance. Asians - two 
administration/faculty. The greatest percentage of ethnic minorities are 
students at our institutions of higher education. 

The commission for the first time this year felt the need to monitor 
the practices of employment in our Annual Conference offices (Council on 
Ministries and Treasurer's office) and we are recommending to the NC Annual 
Conference that steps be taken to actualize racial and ethnic minority 
inclusiveness in these areas. Our Conference camps have been added 

responsibilities of the commission and a report of the findings in this 
area will be given at a later date. 

An Affirmative Action program is in force at all of our institutions 
and agencies with the exception of one and the visitation team recommended 
to that agency the adoption of one as soon as possible. 

Your commission has been in the position to provide scholarship 
assistance to your ethnic minority brothers and sisters for the Adult Study 
Tour and for the National and Jurisdictional Meetings of Black Methodist 
for Church Renewal (BMCR). 

Many of our boards and agencies have not elected a coordinator of 
Religion and Race as is the policy of this Conference; however, the 
commission shall continue to work toward making this a reality. 

A recent recommendation from this commission has been an attempt to 
make us more racially inclusive at the district level - that is to have 
ethnic minority representation on every district council on ministries 
where there are none. It is hoped that the funding for this shall come 
first from our districts and then from the Conference Commission on 
Religion and Race. 

The significance of the visit to our Conference by the General 
Commission on Religion and Race has not yet been felt; however, we are sure 
that much will be derived from this visit that will give impetus to our 
continued work for this quadrennium. 

The United Methodist Church (NC Conference) has come a long way in its 
efforts to Decome an inclusive church. Some notable victories have been 
achieved. We have some celebrating to do, but racism is still too apparent 
at every level in the life of the church and in this Conference and as 
such, it still remains our unfinished agenda. It will require "Our Lord, 
who is able to cleanse and forgive; change and review; heal and reconcile". 

Gwen C. Henderson, Chairperson 

COMMISSION ON THE STATUS AND ROLE OF WOMEN 

The NC Conference Commission on the Status and Role of Women (COSROW) 
moves into the new quadrennium with renewed commitment to its functions as 
described in the DISCIPLINE, Par. 2202. In our roles as advocate, catalyst 
and monitor, we work on behalf of women and their empowerment for full 
participation in the total life and mission of the church. We believe, 

furthermore, that such inclusion of women is one of the ways whereby man 
and woman alike are enabled, as the Body of Christ, to be partners in 
ministry. To this end, we are engaged in a number of programs across our 
Conference. A few of the major emphases are described below. 
DISTRICT COSROW REPRESENTATIVES 

We are pleased to begin our work for the 1985-1988 quadrennium with a 
new structure for COSROW. We now have on the commission a representative 
from each of the 12 districts in our NC Conference. These members sit on 
the District Councils on Ministry (DOOM) as COSROW chairpersons and have 
the following responsibilities: 1) to relate the commission's concerns and 
programs to the DOOM; 2) to help implement programs directed to the 
districts; 3) to resource and assist local church COSROW chairpersons; and 
4) to communicate district and local church concerns to the Conference 
commission. 

273 



LOCAL CHURCH REPRESENTATIVES AND JANUARY WORKSHOP TRAINING 

The General Conference of 1984 made it possible for each local church 
to elect a Status and Role of Women chairperson as a member of the 
Administrative Board and the Council on Ministries or the Administrative 
Council. We are pleased with this action but are disappointed that across 
the NC Conference tew churches have chosen to elect this officer. Some 

churches see themselves as already including women fully in leadership/ 
worship/educational opportunities and responsibilities. We believe that 
every church, including these described, can benefit from the kind of 
self -evaluation that a Status and Role of Women work area can direct. We 

urge that every church in the NC Conference select this chairperson and put 
her to work. The Conference commission is eager to provide resources and 
instruction for any local church Status and Role of Women leader. 
CHILD CARE 

COSROW seeks to be faithful to our commitment and to the recommendation 
by the 1984 session of Annual Conference that child care be provided at 
district meetings and at the 1985 sessions of Annual Conference and 
Conference Summer School. Our district chairpersons continue to work 
through their DCOM's to offer this ministry at meetings on the distict 
level. Child care is being offered at the Annual Conference for the first 
time during the 1985 session. Such an effort is an enormous one, and there 
are numerous difficulties yet to be resolved. It is apparent, however, 
that child care is a vital means for the inclusion of parents, especially 
mothers, in the total life of the church. 
INCLUSIVE LANGUAGE 

We are pleased that the course "Words that Hurt... Words that Heal" will 
be ottered at the 1985 Conference Summer School. While the issue of 

inclusive language is an emotional and difficult one, it is essential that 
individuals and groups struggle with it and understand why it is important. 
In so doing, we will discover that it is possible, when we speak to and 
about each other as well as to and about God, to use words which are not 
strictly male-gender terms. 
ETHNIC MINORITY WOMEN 

Our commitment to the Ethnic Minority Local Church Missional Priority 
focuses upon hopes for a leadership skill development seminar for ethnic 
minority women in 1986. We will work with the missional priority 

coordinating committee and with ethnic minority women to plan such an 
event. 
WOMEN IN THE PULPIT 

COSROW encourages every local church to utilize the leadership skills 
of women in worship by having a "Women in the Pulpit" Sunday. As a part of 
our concern tor open itineracy, we particularly encourage churches of 300 
or more members to have an ordained clergywoman preach during some major 
worship service during the year.

BOARD OF STEWARDSHIP 

"And this they did - but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and 
unto us by the will of God." II Corinthians 8:5 

Paul reported that the Macedonian Christians received the grace of God 
and out of their poverty responded liberally to others' needs. They 

ministered to the needs of other Christians through a financial gift. But, 
first, in order to prepare for this act of generosity, they gave 
themselves. 

It is easier to give pennies than personality. We often give money 
without involving ourselves. The biblical basis for service is to first 
give ourselves to a need and then assist financially. This process is also 
affirmed as good stewardship. 

Your Board of Stewardship exists in order to educate our people in the 
correct style of life and attitude of giving. It is to this end that we 
have given ourselves to serve the members of the local churches. 
ORGANIZING THE BOARD 

The first step was to organize ourselves (40 persons) so as to operate 
efficiently to carry out our mandate to serve the stewardship leaders of 
our local churches. An executive committee composed of 10 persons was 
created with the following concerns within stewardship assigned to specific 
persons. 

Stewarship Education Planned Giving 

Proportionate Giving and Tithing Funding the Local Church 

Time and Abilities Christian Life Style 

Christians/Financial Planning Economics and Management 

A task force from within the board was organized to prepare a local 

274 



church manual to explain the process and to motivate pastors and leaders in 
developing discipleship within the members of all of our local churches. 
This material will be presented in 1986. 
TRAINING IN STEWARDSHIP 

Several training experiences are provided for each level of programming 
in order to raise the level of expertise in these areas. These include: 

- A January Workshop class for training local church leaders in 
stewardship and finance. 

- An SEJ workshop for training the district director of stewardship. 

- A Time/Stress Management Workshop was held for pastors in the 
Greenville District. 

- An Interpretation Workshop in each district was resourced by the 
Board of Stewardship. 

ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES WITHIN THE CONFERENCE 

How to get programs implemented in the local church is the major 
concern of the Board. To expedite this process some lines of support were 
established to bring aid and resources to the local level at their request. 

- Task Forces are named to respond to local church requests for 
implementation of programs. 

- District Directors are trained to seek out needs and to respond to 
local church requests. Their initiative is applied toward developing 
district emphasis. 

- COM staffperson in the Methodist Building will coordinate assistance 
for the local church (Call the Reverend Clyde Dunn at 832-9560). 

- Board Committees concentrate on specific areas within stewardship: 
Stewardship Education - The Reverend Suzanna Helms, Chairperson; Funding 
the Local Church - The Reverend Johnny Branch, Chairperson; Gif tedness 
Ms. Lynn Thigpen, Chairperson; Christian Life Style - The Reverend Dr. 
Tommy Yow, Chairperson. 

STEWARDSHIP FOCUS FOR 1985 

Some special efforts, events and emphasis are being highlighted this 
year tor special consideration by the Conference and the local church. 
These include: 

- An effort to effectively use Conference funds and educate members on 
how they are used. 

- A local church study on the biblical and theological basis for 
stewardship in a one night setting. 

- An Ethnic Minority Stewardship Workshop. 

- Encouragement and promotion of the Conference program on Planned 
Giving. 

- Financial/Interpretation workshops in each district. 

- stewardship education especially designed for children (a manual is 
available for this purpose). 

- Tithing cells organized in local churches. 

"He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which 
soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man (person) 

according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or 
of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver." II Corinthians 9: 6-7

TASK FORCE REPORTS 

Bicentennial Task Force 

The past four years have been exciting and rewarding for the 
Bicentennial Task Force. It is with a bit of sadness we conclude our job. 

In these years, we have seen a renewed interest in the history of the 
Methoaist Church and local church history. Many of our churches have 

already written their local church history and many are now in the process. 

We are grateful to the churches of our Conference for making church 
banners and sharing them with us. They showed hard work, imagination and 
beauty. 

The 200th anniversary of the Methodist Church has been celebrated 
across our Conference. There have been dramas, visits by historical persons 
of our past, studies of our history and theology, hymn sings and district 
ya therings. 

April 20, 1985 saw us at Green Hill House celebrating the 200th 
anniversary of the first official Annual Conference of the Methodist 
Church. We are indebted to the people at Louisburg United Methodist Church 
and the Davis family lowners ot Green Hill House) for making this a 
memorable occasion. 

27 5 



The highlight of our Bicentennial celebration was at our 1984 Annual 
Conference. The masterful narration of the parade of banners and 

processional of the participants in the celebration by Dr. Ralph Hardee 
Rives will long be remembered. Francis Asbury, portrayed by Dr. Robert 
Boron, Ashland United Methodist Church, Columbia, SC, reminded us of the 
past and called us to the future. It was a great celebration. 

We could not have had so successful a celebration of our Bicentennial 
without you, the people. You made it happen. 

To the members of my committee I say a million thanks. You made my job 
easy. 

On to the third century. 

Lawrence E. Lugar, Chairperson 

Church School Evangelism and Extension 

The TasK Force on Church School Evangelism and Extension is proud to 
report that progress is being made across the Conference in the 
strengthening of existing Church Schools and in the starting of new ones. 

Legislation was passed at the 1984 session of the NC Annual Conference 
asking each local church to participate in a program designed to improve 
Church School enrollment and attendance Deginning this August. The program 
is called FETCH, which stands for Find, Encourage, Telephone, Cultivate, 
High Attendance. FETCH asks us all to celebrate a High Attendance Day on 
Sunday, October 13. The goal is for each church to increase its Church 
School enrollment 10% and attendance by 15% over 1984 by October 13. This 
can oe done by each church in the Conf erence . . . bu t it won't happen without 
hard work. By now your church should be organized to make FETCH 

successful. 

Each district has been asked to begin at least one new Church School as 
a mission project during 1985. Many districts have already begun the 
process and some have seen the need to begin more than one. 

Each local church has been asked to consider starting new classes for 
those persons not now being reached by the church, such as young adults, 
single adults, the divorced, latch-key children, and persons with 
handicapping conditions. Each local church should start at least one new 
Church School class in 1985. 

With this renewed emphasis in the NC Conference the 20-year decline in 
Church School enrollment and attendance will be reversed! 

Robert O'Keef, Chairperson 

FETCH 

What is FETCH? It is an intentional method used to increase the 
enrollment and attendance in the local church program of Christian 
education, especially in the Sunday School. FETCH has been used 

successfully by churches of various sizes in the North Carolina Conference. 
1 1 is not a contest; it is a movement. Its purpose is to increase the 
number on the roll rather than reduce it. Studies show that growing 

churches focus their attention on enrollment, the adding of new members to 
Sunday school classes. 

Why have such a program? The Great Commission demands that we reach 
out and extend our teaching ministry to everyone. "Go therefore and make 
disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of 
the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have 
commanded you." Matt. 28:19-20a. The Bible constantly underscores the 
need tor growth in Christian maturity. See Eph. 4:15, Col. 1:10, I Pet. 
2:2, 2 Pet. 3:18. 

What is needed to make it work? For FETCH to work in your church it 
will take: 1) A congregation willing to make the Sunday School a major 
priority; 2) A pastor who participates in planning and promotion; 3) 
Attendance goals and promotion; 6) An ongoing program of visitation. If 

your memoers will commit themselves to these essentials FETCH will work for 
you. 

How is it administered? A representative of each adult and youth 
class, the Pastor, the Church School Superintendent, the Education 
Chairperson, teachers, counselors, and others interested in the program of 
Christian education should take the lead. Even if you have an Education 
WorK Area, you should name a FETCH Task Force with the above persons as 
memoers. This task force will want to make sure that adequate training is 
provided all workers. 

What about the dates given for FETCH? There is a reason for the 

specific steps given in the program. There is also great merit in all 

276 



churches in the district and Conference following the same schedule. This 
program may be tailored acccording to the specific needs of your local 
church. You will want to plan a suitable kick-off for FETCH, including a 
service of dedication for workers and teachers. 

What is you need help? Members of your district Task Force on Church 
School Evangelism and Extension and your Conference Council on Ministries 
staff will be available if you need help. 

FIND .. .August 18-31. Compare the church roll book with class rolls and 
make a list of persons not now enrolled. Ask class members and church 
memoers to give the names of friends and family members not in a class at 
the present time. Enrollment is "the key" to growth. Have an area 

canvass. 

ENCOURAGE. . .September 1-14. Write letters of welcome to all of the 
prospective class members identified during the "Find" campaign. Tell of 
the value of being part of an organized Christian fellowship which is 
committed to the study of our faith. Tell others about what is happening 
throughout the life of the local church. 

TELEPHONE .. .September 15-28. Make one or more phone calls to every 
person who has been identified as a prospective class member. Make this a 
most personal call uring them to be a part of a class in the church. 

CULTIVATE. . .September 29-October 12. Visit all persons identified as 
prospective class members. Visit all those who have shown an interest 
through steps F, E and T. Take copies of curriculum resources with you. 
Be enthusiastic as you share what is happening in the various classes in 
the church. "Enroll" persons at this time in a class. 

HIGH ATTENDANCE SUNDAY October 13. This is a day to celebrate! Each 

local church will be given a specific numerical goal by the District Task 
Force. On October 13, you will want to recognize all new class members. 
This is also Laity Sunday and a great time to recognize the place of 
persons serving as teachers, counselors and administrators. You will want 
to have a service of recognition and dedication for them. 

FETCH Address to Annual Conference 

FETCH is a straight-forward effort to increase the enrollment and the 
attenaance of the Sunday Schools in the North Carolina Conference. It is 
the purpose of the Task Force on Church School Evangelism and Extension to 
inspire pastors and laity to a new commitment to the teaching-learning 
ministry, and to bring about a greater enthusiasm for Sunday School growth, 
numerical and spiritual formation growth. 

We have gone through two decades in which it has been popular to low 
rate the Sunday School as an arm of Christian educaton in the local church. 
I trust this period of debunking and selling short the Sunday School is 
over. There are signs that indicate this. It is a marvel that the Sunday 
School has survived as well as it has. Consider sociologists and religious 
analysis have almost delighted in saying that the Sunday School is the most 
wasted hour of the week. I am not here to cast stones, but in our colleges 
and seminaries there is not often heard an encouraging word about the 
school we call Sunday School. 

It has come to pass that the teaching-learning ministry as found in our 
Sunday Schools is not considered a prime area of responsibli li ty by the 
pastor. Pastor-Parish Relations Committees say, not with a bitter note, 
but with a yearning note, I wish our pastor would do more to encourage and 
inspire the work of the Sunday School. 

Even the general church, I fear, has lowered its vision of the Sunday 
School movement. This can be seen in organization and reorganization of 
local church structure. On the Annual Conference level consider this: 
Until the late 1960's, two-thirds of the entire Conference staff were 
engaged in Christian Education ministries. In those days if we did not cut 
it in the church School, we were not considered effective. Then came the 
concept on the Annual Conference level and the local church concept of a 
Council on Ministries. Many good and great things have resulted from this 
structure but one net effect has been a lessening of time and effort of the 
teaching-learning ministry, especially in the Sunday Schools. 

This is not an effort to blame anyone. As chairman of the NC 

Conference Board of Education at the time of the new structure, I helped 
dismantle all the old plans. Look at this on the local church level. 
Prior to 19b8, one group in the local church that usuallly met regularly 
other than the Administrative Board, was the Commission on Education. This 
group usually met monthly to look after the concerns of the Sunday School 
ana, of course, Christian Education in the local church. That was its prime 
concern. Now, when the Council on Ministries in the local church meets, 
all the concerns of the local church are considered. One item on a long 

27 7 



agenda is the concerns of the Church School. Regular meetings of Sunday 
Scnool officers and teachers have decreased. Workers' conferences of all 
those who teach or work in the Church School are unknown to some schools. 
|In spite of all the forces that have converged to kill off the Sunday 
school, it has survived and I submit it is one of the healthiest groups in 
| the local church, and in many places is the strategic base of discipleship 
and witness. 

I submit that great things happen in the Sunday School. We need a new 
climate of concern for the teaching-learning ministries and for the Sunday 
School, a new spirit of encouragement for its mission, a commitment to its 
values. I trust you will not think I am tampering with the New Testament 
when I claim that Jesus began his public ministry by going to Sabbath 
School. He announces his mission as Messiah by reading from the book of 
Isaiah. The test was printed in the quarterly. Yes, I suggest that the 
results we desire in our Sunday Schools are similar to what took place in 
the Nazareth school that day. Dr. Luke describes the scene by telling us 
that after Jesus read from the book, he handed it over to one of the 
teachers and sat down. "All there fastened their eyes on Jesus." I take 
it that is our aim. Let me repeat the golden text again, "All there 
fastened their eyes on Jesus". 

In 1970, we had 34,477 enrolled in our children's division; today, 
23,192. In 1970, we had 23,481 enrolled in our youth division; today, 
13,454. In 1970, we had 55,352 enrolled in our adult classes; today, 
5i,t>65. In 1970, our total enrollment was 126,352; today, we have 100,167. 
Average attendance in 1970 was 71,092 per Sunday. In 1984, the average was 
50,328. To put this another way, 20,767 persons less hear about Christ and 
His Church on a given Sunday than in 1970. 

In the Fayetteville District I wish I could report that the report is 
different. But I cannot. In 1984, we had 35 less on any given Sunday than 
in 1983. The challenging part of this is that if each Sunday School in the 
Fayetteville District had averaged just one more per Sunday, we could have 
reversed a 20-year downtrend. 

For the Conference as a whole, we average 392 less on any given Sunday 
in 1984 than in 1983. And here again, if every Sunday School in the 
Conference had averaged only one more per Sunday, a 20-year downtrend would 
be reversed. But in the 1984 Conference report, there is the sign, and I 
consider it a "Johannine" sign. In 1984, we have more children enrolled in 
the Sunday School than we had in 1983 - 344 more, in fact, true for the 
first time in 19 years. I submit to you that often when God gets ready to 
do something great in His Church, He starts with children or even a child. 
May this "Johannine" sign be a beginning of a new movement in the Sunday 
School. 

One of the centralities that we lay hold of is the certainty of the 
evangelistic mission of the Sunday School. Yes, the Sunday School is a 
school. I t is a teaching-learning ministry. It is an agent of fellowship. 
It is tor discipleship and spiritual formation. But also it is to reach 
out an bring others into the orbit of the love of God. I fear we have seen 
only the nurture purpose and not the outreach mission of the Sunday School. 
The Sunday School that is focused on its members only will in the very 
nature of the Christian life become less and less. A growing Sunday School 
is almost always focused out. Walter Towner said, "The Church School that 
is not evangelistic is not Christian." Please don't resist this. What if 
every Sunday School class had two roll books - one of its present members, 
another of prospective members. Every class from nursery to adult an 
evangelistic arm as well as a nurturing arm. If a class does not have a 
list of folks it is endeavoring to pray into that class, what does that say 
about the nature and mission of that class? 

Arn and McGravin in their book A NEW VISION OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL say, 
"Outward-focused Sunday Schools in contrast to inward-focused Sunday 
schools, see evangelism and education as two sides of the same coin; two 
tasks to achieve one goal. Carrying out Christ's great commission, to 
reach and make disciples to lost people is the motivation for Christian 
education in most growing Sunday Schools." 

Bishop Richard Wilke, in his first year as episcopal leader of the 
Arkansas Area, was asked early on about the loss of membership in the 
Arkansas area, 5% decline in the past four years. In his reply he told of 
what he did as pastor of First United Methodist Church in Wichita. I 

quote, "We tried 18 ways to grow in downtown Wichita and failed. Then we 
tried Sunday School and succeeded. We had nine adult classes 10 years ago. 
Now we have 19 adult classes with 700 adults." If we are going to be 
strong where we need to be strong, we will be clear that our purpose is 
nurture and outreach, education and evangelism, fellowship and witness. 
Not one or the other but both. 

Take a look with me at four all important values of the Sunday School: 

278 



1) It is the No 1 evangelistic arm of the Untied Methodist Church. I am 

going over ground that you have been over before. I do so intentionally. 
This path is well-worn because it leads somewhere. Hear this: from 62% to 
b7% of those who have been receivea into the Church on profession of faith 
and first decisions for Christ have come through the Sunday School. This 

is true year after year. You say/ "Oh/ you're talking about children." 
Yes, but also about youth and adults. United Methodists have been 

surveying membership rolls to determine where we are losing members. 
Findings are revealing that we have no more losses than other years due to 
deaths. We are not losing members to other denominations. The fact is we 
are receiving more persons from other denominations than we are losing. 
Our losses are in the area of profession of faith and first decisions for 
Christ. This points to how strategic the Sunday School is as an 
evangelistic arm of the Church. 

In 1967, we received into our Church in this Conference 4,309 persons 
on profession of faith. Three thousand one hundred and seventy-four of 
those came through our Sunday Schools. In 1983, the figures are: Persons 
by profession of faith 3,381; from the Sunday School, 2,200. There is some 
truth to the old proverb "As goes the Sunday School, so goes the Church." 
The Sunday School is the No. 1 evangelistic arm of the Church. 

Last year, I asked one pastor of a small membership church, "What 
happened this year that brought you your greatest joy? He replied, "A 57 
year old man in our adult Sunday School class professed faith in Jesus 
Christ. We baptized him and two members of his family. It was a great day 
for us. " 

2) The Fellowship of the Small Group. This can hardly be 
overemphasize a. The place in the local church where there is the offer of 
fellowship and caring values of the small group for all ages every week is 
the Sunday School. Nothing in the way of small groups has the overall 
impact of Sunday School as this offers nurture and fellowship. Caring and 
support are experienced in the face to tace give and take of small groups. 
Such can be provided in our Sunday Schools for all ages every week. 

Our Church has just put out the first issue of a new publication under 
the title "People to People, Reaching out through the Sunday School." That' 
such a sheet is being published is another sign of a new commitment to the 
values of the Sunday School. I quote from the first issue about a growing 
Sunday School, "Sunday School helps us communicate. We're like a family. 
We love each other. Sunday School binds us together." Fellowship deepens 
and intensifies in the class. Christian growth thrives in a climate of 
courageous caring such as can be found in a Sunday School class. 

In a survey the largest single reason given by those who have returned 
to Sunday School is the need for Christian fellowship. Thirty-five percent 
of those who identified their reason for coming to a class listed Christian 
fellowship. I do not mean to say we can create Christian fellowship, 
rather I affirm it is our Lord's gift to us when we gather in His marvelous 
Name. One more thought on fellowship in the Sunday School class. A person 
who comes into membership in the church is less likely to become inactive 
it he or she finds and becomes a part of a Sunday School class. The Sunday 
School can help close the bacK door. 

3) The Sunday School is the number one school in the church's 
teaching -learning ministry, save only the Christian home. Critics argue 
that often it is not much of a school. But a great deal does occur in the 
Sunday School. One of the purposes of the church School is to help persons 
understand the Christian faith and heritage that comes to us through the 
BiDle and the church. And this bibical church heritage is passed on in a 
teaching-learning ministry. How does a person who does not know about 
Jesus respond to him? I am aware that we can know about Jesus and not know 
Jesus. But persons of all age groups will hear about Jesus in the Sunday 
School. Over fifty thousand persons next Sunday will hear about our Lord 
all the way from the nursery to adult classes. There is a knowledge 
dimension, a content dimension to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Christian 
disciples are called to know and to feel. The Sunday School at its best is 
a teaching-learning community. 

Father John Wesley urged the people called Methodists to unite the two 
so long divided: learning and vital piety. 

I arrived at a small frame church for Sunday School. The men's Bible 
class consisted of perhaps 12-14 persons present. Class business was 

presented, offering taken. Then a retired school principal got up and 
cracked open the lesson. It was on Romans, but he had a grasp on it. Then 
he involved the class in discussion - not sharing of ignorance, but a 
discussion on the points in the lesson. He summed it up. We all read the 
key verse and prayed together. A meaningful, stimulating session. I said 
to myself, "Any persson in this entire community would be a better person 
and a stronger disciple by taking part in this class. The Sunday School is 

279 



the numoer one arm of the teaching-learning ministry. Let's get on with 

It ! 

4} The Sunday School is where leaders are developed. Leaders are not 
imaae, they are grown. We have in the Sunday Schools nearly 12,000 persons 
who are in action every week - EVERY WEEK!!! Where does the laity study 
and lead and act every week? Basic training in church leadership so often 

ijbegins in the Church School. Pew other organized groups for all age groups 

jmeet every week. But in the Sunday School teachers study, leaders prepare, 
class officers function, plans are made. 

I remember a poised and radiant woman leading and speaking to a large 
group. In the course of her speech she told that she got her start by 
leading a devotional period in a Sunday School class. One young adult man 
told me that a highlight of the week for him was the person who spoke at 

! the opening assembly of the adult division. I f we are going to be strong 
where we need to be strong in the development of lay leadership, I submit 

'that the laity is in action every week in the Sunday School. Where else 

are we giving 12,000 persons leadership positions which offer opportunities 

| tor the laity every week to lead and grow and reach out? 

FETCH is a straight-forward, very simple plan to increase enrollment 

! and attendance in our Sunday Schools. We have some high goals. The 

foundation blocks are fellowshiip and caring. Please do with me a bit of 
possibility thinking. Let's do this in order to help us see that goals can 

i be achieved. 

It every Sunday School averaged one more person present each Sunday 
than last year, we would reverse a 20 year trend and show an increase. Or 
it in each district we organized 10 new Sunday School classes, 10 new 
classes, we would have 120 over the Conference. If each new class averaged 
10 persons present per Sunday, and we just held our own in all other 
classes, we would not only reverse a 20 year trend, we would have the most 
persons enrolled and in attendance hearing about Jesus than we have had in 
three years. 

Try this one. If each Sunday School in our Conference increased its 
enrollment by five, yes, just five, we would have the highest enrollment we 
have had in six years. I f we organized one new Sunday School in each 
district and that new school averaged 40 persons present, we would turn our 
decreases into increases. 

We have set enrollment month for September and a high attendance day 
for October 13. Each Sunday School will be given a goal. Consider: If 

each Sunday School would take its high attendance in 1984 and increase that 
by three on Octoer 13, we would have more persons in Bible study on that 
day than we have had on any one Sunday in eight years. Let these 

possibilities thrill your souls! When persons hear about Him, some always 
tall in love with Him. And others fall more in love with Him. 

Would you say to me - Herman, much thinking about the Sunday School has 
made you mad. Then I say to you, I would that you were as I am about the 
Sunday School save for these losses and chains of debate. I do not appeal 
to Caesar, I do not wish to go to Rome. I t is enough for me to make a case 
before our Bible-believing Bishop, to my colleagues in the Cabinet, to my 
brothers and sisters in the covenant ministry, to my lay brothers and 
sisters in Christ. I say, let there be in the year 1985 a mighty movement 
in the Sunday Shcool. Let this not be an emphasis but a movement. Knights 
ot the cross, there is no need to gather around the washbowl of Pilate and 
wring our hands over the Sunday School. Great things happen in the Sunday 
School. In the Sunday School we read and study about the mighty acts of 
God, but more, we are a celebrating community in which the mighty acts of 
God are performed. 

Let not this FETCH program be just a program and one more set of 
reports. Let it be the year of the Sunday School, a new movement in the 
teaching-learning ministry. 

In the matchless name of Jesus Christ, let our Church School be a place 
where the wean grow strong and the strong grow great. 
Hallelujah! Amen!

of churches have used TLC Team persons in a variety of ways including 
curriculum consultation, teacher training workshops/ creative activities 
courses/ etc. 

The TLC Team annual training event was held overnight at Camp Chestnut 
Ridge in March, 1985. Twenty-eight persons have contracted to fill at 
least two assignments this year. These committed leaders may be required 
by a local church or a group of churches to lead in an event by contacting 
Children's Ministries, P O Box 10955, Raleigh, NC 27605 (919) 832-9560 or 
1-800-621-5467. 

A Children's Ministries resource book is being prepared by the CCOM. 
Designed to provide practical help in 12 areas of children's ministry, the 
booklet will be ready in Fall 1985. Churches may request a copy along with 
a consultation by one of the TLC Team members. 

TLC Team members will offer leadership for the course "Evangelism in 
the Church School - Teaching Children" at Conference Summer School, August 
1985. 

Focus ' 85 - a national conference on ministry with children with the 
theme "Children, The Word and The World" will have four CCOM 
representatives attend its July meeting in Nashville, TN .

During the previous year the Conference Council on Young Adult 
Ministries has offered to Conference young adults a spiritual enrichment 
weekena at the Ramaaa Inn, Atlantic Beach, centered around the theme, 
"Invitation to Practice". Wallace Chappell, formerly of the Board of 
Discipleship, was our key resource person. Additionally, the Conference 
Council on ¥oung Adult Ministries co-sponsored a S ingle /S ingle Again 
Retreat also at Atlantic Beach. These events were Febraury 8-10 and May 
j-b respectively. The council is also considering ways to strengthen young 
aault worK on the local level. Currently, a training lab for young adult 
worKers is being planned for the spring of 1986. Another goal is the 

placiny of resource material into the hands of young adult leaders through 
the coordinated mailings. The feeling of the council is that a great area 
of ministy stands before us in which we hope, by God's grace, to 
effectively serve tor the strengthening of the church and the people. 

David A. Banks, Chairperson 

Council on Adult and Family Life Ministries 

The Adult and Family Council is excited about the ministries planned 
tor 19b5. Due to conflicts in scheduling leadership, the Council is 
planning to otter a leadership training event later in 1985 for a new 
program designed by the Board of Discipleship entitled "Celebrate 
Marriage". This is an entry-level marriage enrichment program intended to 
introduce couples in the local church to marriage enrichment. The Board of 
Discipleship will be certifying leaders and are encouraging pastors and 
interested lay persons to seek certification. Details will be forthcoming. 
By the time this report is distributed our Single /Single Again Retreat 
will have been completed. This event was entitled, FAITH: Friendships 
Affirming Intimacy, Trust and Hope. The Reverend Willie Teague, who has 
been involved with the Jurisdictional leadershiip team since its beginning, 
was the featured leader. He was assisted by Dr. Michael L. Hale. This is 
a growing ministry within our Conference. 

In November the Council is planning a Family Enrichment retreat built 
on the program, "Understanding Us" designed by Dr. Patrick Carnes. This 

event will help families discover those special qualities which make them a 
family. Families will have an opportunity to celebrate their uniqueness. 

The Council is assisting the Board of Education in planning an Older 
Adult Symposium in November. The theme for the one-day event will be "An 
Affirmation of Aging". We are planning an exciting event and look forward 
to this ministry. 

The Adult and Family Council is appreciative of the support of the 
Council on Ministries and especially the Board of Education. 
TASK FORCE ON CRISIS AND FAMILY LIFE 

At the 1980 Session of the Annual Conference, a resolution was passed 
that "the Bishop and Cabinet shall appoint a special task force to 
investigate and make recommendations as to how, as an Annual Conference we 
can design and implement creative and effective ministries and resources in 
response to the crisis in Family Life in our nation". 

The report of the task force to the 1981 Annual Conference outlined six 
areas of concern which included: 1) Investigating Needs; 2) Providing 
resources; 3) Leadership Develpment; 4) Focus on the Ethnic Minority Local 
Church and Family Life; 5) Focus on the Family Life Component of 
Strengthening the local Church for Evangelistic Mission in the World; 6) 
Focus on the National Youth Ministry Organization concern for family life 
and youth. 

Investigation of needs has been a difficult task. Informally, many 

persons have indicated that there are great needs in the area of family 
life but a formal survey proved to be unsuccessful. A one-page survey of 
needs was devised and sent to pastors and family coordinators in two 
districts, but only a few persons took the time to complete and return 
them. Some means to assess needs should be devised in the future. 

There are now many resources available to churches in the area of 
marriage and family lite. A list of materials is to be available from the 
Conference ottice in the area. The Methodist Children's Home has expanded 
its ministry in this area, at the direction of the Annual Conference in 
1979, with the establishment of the Family Life department in 1984. 

Continuing leadershp development, the Conference Council on Ministries, 
through the work of the Board of Education and the assistance of the Adult 
and Family Council, has provided for training and certification 
opportunities in the area of marriage and family enrichment for the past 
three years. 

Although the numerical response to family life in the Ethnic Minority 
Local Church was minimal, the results proved to be interesting. A meeting 

28 2 



tor members and ministers of Black churches was held in Fayetteville at 
John Wesley United Methodist Church, October 9, 1982. We learned that 

tamily lite has been going through a transition in the Black church but not 
as dramatically as that of predominantly White churches. Most of the 

participants were concerned that many Black families were adopting the 
values of White middle-class families. 

Native American churches were invited to a similar meeting on November 
7, 1982 at Prospect United Methodist Church. The results of this gathering 
proved to De an affirmation of the Native American family rather than a 
focus on problems. Native American families and churches in our Conference 
experience a positive view of the family. 

Programatically , the task force was not as successful as it could have 
been, Out we do think that the very existence of the task force brought 
some important attention to the issues of family life. The Conference 

Council on Ministries, and particularly the Board of Education and the 
Adult and Family Council have Deen increasingly supportive of family 
issues. The issue of Singles and Single Again persons, and the single 
parent family is one of the most critical, if not the most critical issues 
in tamily life today. The Southeastern Jurisdiction has had a strong 
program in this area in recent years. 

The original motion of the 1980 Annual Conference charged the Task 
Force on Crisis in Family Life with "making recommendations as to how an 
Annual Conference can design and implement creative and effective 
ministries ana resources..." Through the normal structure of our church 
ana conterence we have the means to fulfill this charge. We need to insure 
that the structure is open and sensitive to the concerns of our Conference 
in the area of tamily life. 

Michael L. Hale, Chairperson 

Hunger/Human Need 

World hunger has been on the minds and hearts of our United Methodists 
in eastern North Carolina, especially during 1984 and 1985. We gave 
$191,170.56 tor Africa hunger relief and $51,832.47 for general hunger 
ministries world-wide through the UMCOR Hunger Advance. 

Plans are being made to promote a conference -wide World Hunger Advance, 
using the t ish banK of UMCOR during Lent of 1986. 

This Conterence cares about world hunger, but is being challenged to do 
much more than before. 

Further, this Conference demonstrates concern for hunger and poverty in 
eastern North Carolina where unemployment is still high and many are still 
economically deprived. In 1984, $62,500.0U was appropriated from central 
funds to be granted by the Task Force on Hunger/Human Need. Fifty-seven 

hunger/human need ministries from each of our 12 districts asked for a 
total of $181,194.00 to help to feed, to cloth, to provide shelter, to 
provide meaical care, to provide transportation, to provide fuel and 
utilities, to secure employment, to provide other services and substances 
tor emergency and continuing circumstances of basic survival and human 
aignity; §82,500.00 was granted to those 57 ministries. 

One hundred twenty-five thousand dollars ($125,000.00) was requested by 
the task torce tor 1985 and granted. 

The TasK Force on Hunger/Human Need is grateful to be a part of helping 
this Conterence to reach out beyond and next door to persons hungry, poor 
and deprived... "In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of 
these. . . "

A Quadrennial Congregational Development and Church Growth Report 

The Annual Conference of 1984 approved a Quadrennial Conference-Wide 
Congregational Development and Church Growth Plan for establishing new 
churches and revitalizing existing congregations to win new disciples, 
reclaim inactive members and nurture all members. 

This has been in operation since the fall of 1984 with the following 
events and accomplishments: 

1. Conference-wide training and information meeting in November. 

2. Wide-Area Long-Term Trends Analysis and Profile Study of every local 
church, giving population trenas, membership changes, and financial 
strength over a period of 13 years, from 1970 to 1983. 

3. District Teams have been established in all 12 districts and at 
least three meetings have been held by each. At least 16 persons serve on 
each team. 

28 3 



4. The Conterence committee met in February in Goldsboro to hear 
reports trom all districts. At that meeting the following projects, 
information, and plans were reported: 

A. Three dominant trends emerged: 

1) churches are planning an extensive public relations attempt 
to raise the image, vision, and optimism relative to the good things going 
on in the churches. The gist is "to get the story out". 

2) Six districts propose to consider realignment of some 
charges in other to strengthen the base for ministry and fellowship. 

3) Thirteen areas were identified by five districts as 
considered sites tor new congregations. 

B. A variety of projects already begun: One district is conducting 
an extensive study of three counties and their needs. All churches on 
another district are doing a self -study with such to conclude with a 
mission statement. One district adopted goals dealing with the 
establishment of three Sunday School extensions. Another district has 
undertaken a concerted effort to develop lay ministries and lay involvement 
in all levels of ministry. One district has divided itself into four 
sub-districts as study teams. A metropolitan district conducted a thorough 
study of population changes and the influence these changes have on the 
churches. The other districts are involved in realignments, se If -s tudi es, 
and new church planting. 

5. This year of 1985 shall be spent in further explorations by the 
district. In the fall another Conference committee meeting will be held to 
consider Conference-wide projects to be presented to the programming 
process tor 1987 by the CCOM. 

t>. For your information. The Wide-Area Trends Analysis and Local 
Church Frofile of Membership, Attendance, and Finances, conducted by ACTS, 
Association for Christian Training and Service, turned up the following: 

- All but 3 of our 56 counties of the NC Conference experienced a 
population increase, totaling (for the 53) 15.7% or 385,816. 

- The churches in those counties ha d a gain of 1.3% - From 1970 to 1983 
our Conference received 41,258 new members on confession of faith, a number 
that exceeds the total membership of any one of 10 other United Methodist 
Cnferences in the USA. 

- Of the churches studies (804), 364 gained 23,131 and 441 churches 
lost 18,044 members. 

- This study documented the following: 30 churches gained 6,690 
members; 90 gained 10,518; 99 churches gained 4,369; and 145 gained 1,554 
members; 93 lost 7,216; 84 lost 4,095; 137 churches lost 5,074; and 127 
churches lost 1,664. 

- Overall losses cannot be attributed to loss of population. 

- The highest gain in population occurred in Dare County (91.2%) with 
the resident churches gaining only 4.5% Orange County had a gain of 33.9% 
in population but a 2.3% gain in church members. 

- Overall, the ethnic minority population constitutes one-third (33.1%) 
of the population ot the Conference. Warren County has the highest 
concentration of ethnic minorities, 63.7%. Dare County is lowest with 6.8% 
ot the total. 

- According to projected population increase in our 56 counties, if we 
maintained the current ratio of members to population, by the year 2000, 
our overall memoership increase should be 43,000. The same theoretical 
increase applied to the past 12 years would have given us 32,022 more 
members. We gained only 2,688. This means that our strategy for growth 
needs to be carefully analyzed. 

The Conference Committee 

THE BOARD OF WORSHIP 

The Board ot Worship met at Methodist College August 17 and 18, 1984 to 
begin the planning process of its quadrennial work. The board agreed to 
continue its yearly publication of our lectionary aid booklet. An Arts 

Festival was planned tor September of 1985, and a workshop on supplemental 
worship resources was planned in conjunction with Duke Divinity School 
Office ot Continuing Education and the Western NC Conference Board of 
Worship. February 1, 1985, a consultation on "Baptism, Eucharist, and 
Ministry" was held at Duke Divinity School in conjunction with the North 
Carolina and Western NC Commissions on Christian Unity, Boards of Ordained 
Ministry and Boards of Worship. The board has analyzed the results of the 
Worship survey which are a part of this report. The work of the board for 
the remainder of the quadrennium will reflect our interpretation of the 
survey. The board was asked to design the worship services for the 
Bishop's Seminar on the Ministry and was pleased to have the opportunity to 

28 4 



design inclusive worship services. The question of the relationship 

between spiritual formation and worship has been identified as a major 
issue to be addressed during this quadrennium. 
1984 WORSHIP SURVEY 

In January of 1984, the Conference Board of Worship, in conjunction 
with the Western NC Conference, distributed a survey designed to summarize 
worship practices throughout the Conference and to discover ways that the 
Board of Worship could better serve the pastors. 

Three hundred and eighty nine completed surveys were returned giving a 
broaa sampling of worship practices in the conferences. The following is a 
brief summary of the survey results. 

Worship ministry (preaching and worship leadership) was ranked most 
important to the respondents, with pastoral ministry, outreach ministry, 
education ministry, ana administrative ministry trailing in that order. 
Consistent with these priorities, the majority of the respondents have 
taKen conference and/or district level continuing education courses in 
worship. 

The great majority (86.9%) of the ministers plan every act of worship 
or every act of worship except the anthem. Only 8% of the pianists, 19% of 
the organists and 32% of the choir directors help in planning worship. 

About 20% of the churches use a "Word and Table" type format with the 
sermon preceding the offering. 

Just as one pattern of worship seems to predominate, so does a set of 
common "acts of worship". Sixty percent or more of our respondents usually 
use a Call to Worship, Invocation, three hymns, Silent Prayer, Prayer 
Requests, Pastoral Prayer, Responsive Reading, Apostles' Creed, 
Announcements, Gloria Patri , Offering, Anthem, Doxology, one or more 
scripture lessons, Sermon, Children's Sermon/Time, Invitation to Christian 
Discipleship, Benediction, and Choral or Congregational Response. There is 
some variety in the types of prayers and in the number of scripture lessons 
used. 

There is widespread emphasis on the Church Year, especially Lent/Easter 
and Advent/Christmas. Surprisingly, Pentecost Day is widely celebrated 
(77.4%). Laity Sunday (79.7%) and Revivals (85.6%) are celebrated almost 
as widely as the seasons of Lent and Advent. Mother's Day, Father's Day, 
Homecoming, and Thanksgiving are "secular" holidays with general observance 
in our churches. 

Scripture remains central to our worship. One scripture passage is 
usually used by 49.6% of the pastors; 35.5% report reading two, and 20.8% 
report three Isome checked more than one answer). Fifty-seven and 

nine-tenths percent always or generally select scripture readings from the 
lectionary and larger percentages always or generally relate scripture to 
either the church year or to the sermon topic for the Sunday. Use of the 
lectionary is more common among younger pastors and pastors serving 
churches with average attendance of more than 100. 

Formal sermon evaluation is largely neglected. Ninety-one percent rely 
on informal comments from laity while, 43.3% listen to the recorded sermon, 
and only 15.2% use organized methods of obtaining feedback. The most used 
resources for sermon preparation are as follows (in descending order of 
popularity): commentaries, translations, THE INTERPRETER'S BIBLE, 

concordance, previous sermons, sermon periodicals, INTERPRETER'S DICTIONARY 
OF THE BIBLE, sermons by other ministers, Greek word study, study with 
other ministers, and Hebrew word study (35 out of 389!). 

The traditional baptismal service (#828 in the BOOK OF HYMNS) is used 
by 89.9% of the pastors. Only 12.6% use the baptismal ritual in the 
SUPPLEMENTAL WORSHIP RESOURCES series. 93.3% have baptised by sprinkling 
in the last two years, while only 16.5% have used immersion and 10.8% 
pouring. 90% have preached on baptism at least once in the last two years. 
There is one area of significant division. 39.1% have performed rebaptisms 
and 45.0% report they would rebaptize if requested to do so. Of the 

ministers under 40, 23.4% have rebaptized and 28.2% would rebaptize if 
requested. Of the ministers 40 or over, 49.8% have rebaptized and 53.6% 
would rebaptize if requested. 29% of the elders have rebaptized and 31.6% 
would rebaptize if requested. Of the elders who would rebaptize, 24% are 
unaer 40 and 78% are 40 or over. 

A plurality of churches (48.6%) celebrate Holy Communion 1-5 times per 
year; 33.4% celebrate it 6-11 times and 16.7% celebrate it 12 or more times 
(including a third of the Black or Native American pastors). The 

traditional short form is most used, though the communion text in the 
SUPPLEMENTAL WORSHIP RESOURCES series has wider use (28.3%) than does the 
baptismal ritual in that same series (see above). Of the pastors under 40, 
37* use tne supplemental communion text; of the pastors 40 or over, 22.7% 
use the supplemental text. It is common to preach on the meaning of the 
sacrament, 95.6% having done so at least once in the previous two years. 

285 



In the great majority of churches (93.6%) children take part in worship 
by serving as acolytes. Children's sermons (84.1%) and children's choirs 
(76.9%) are also common during worship. In 16.7% of the churches/ the 
children attend a separate "children's church". In all of these churches, 
however, children also participate in the main worship service during a 
"children's time" or as acolytes or choir members. 

Youth appear to be less involved in worship-leading experiences than 
children. In 72% of the churches youth serve as ushers. Fewer churches 

have youth serving as acolytes (62.5%) but 43.7% do use youth as readers. 

The statistics indicate that worship is primarily seen as an adult 
activity. Out of the total church family, adults attend worship in the 
largest percentages, followed by children and finally youth. Only 25% of 
the churches had a youth worship attendance rate of 51% or better, whereas 
41.4% of the churches had an adult attendance rate of 51% or better. 
Adults were involved most commonly as choir members and readers (both 
97.2%), ushers (96.9%), muscians (83.3%), and lay speakers (81.5%). 

Lay adults are educated about worship by the senior pastor in 96.9% of 
the churches, with the Worship work area doing the same in 47% of the 
churches. The senior paster is somewhat less involved in educating youth 
and children in worship, although the pastor remains more responsible for 
educating youth (90%) and children (88.7%) than does the youth coordinator 
164.3%) and children's coordinator (62%). 

The means of education most used by churches to instruct their children 
I 79. 7%) and youth (76.9%) in worship is the confirmation class, followed by 
Sunday School and acolyte training in that order. Education for adults 

comes primarily through the Sunday School in 64.5% of the churches. In the 
majority of churches the choir program (62.7%) and instruction during 
worship itself (6.4%) provided additional adult education. For the adults, 
Sunday School and choir became the replacement for confirmation and acolyte 
training as the place to receive worship education. 

THE BOOK OF HYMNS (the United Methodist Hymnal) is used in nearly all 
(97.7%) of the churches, with the COKESBURY HYMNAL running a distant second 
at 47 .b%. Only 1.8% are using the new SUPPLEMENT TO THE BOOK OF HYMNS and 
5.4% (including all of the Black respondents) are using the new SONGS OF 
ZION hymnal. A few use the UPPER ROOM HYMNAL and others. 

The most popular procedures for teaching new hymns to the congregation 
are: using a new hymn as a choir anthem (used by 60.2% of the churches), 
Hymn of the Month (27.5%), and Song Sundays (19.0%). 17.5% of the 

respondents do not use any method for teaching new hymns. 

Adult choirs are found in most (94.1%) of the churches, children's 
choirs are the next most common (62.0%) followed by youth choirs (42.7%). 
Handbell choirs are found in 11.6% of the churches. 

Pianos are the most often used musical instrument in worship (97.2%); 
electronic organs are used by 73.8% of the churches and pipe organs by only 
lb. 7%. 12.1% use handbells. Guitars are the most popular non-keyboard 
instrument, used by 64.0%, followed by brass instruments at 35.2%. 

By tar, the training most asked for Dy the respondents was in Involving 
Lay People in Worship (45.8%). 25% to 30% of the respondents asked for 
training in Children in Worship, Creative Use of the Hymnal, Resources for 
Preparation, and youth in Worship. Other areas checked by over 20% of the 
respondents included Introduction to the Theology and Practice of Worship, 
Planning of Worship Services, Observance of the Church Year, Sermon 
Preparation, Theology and Practice of Baptism, use of New Worship 
Resources, and Media in Worship. 

Involving Lay People in Worship was also the training pastors most 
often requested tor their lay people (60.4%) with Observance of the Church 
Year included (in descending order): Introduction to the Theology and 
Practice of Worship, Theology and Practice of the Lord's Supper, Theology 
ano Practice of Baptism, Introduction to the New Music and Hymns, Use of 
the Hymnal, Evaluation of Sermons, Children and Worship, Development of 
Worship Aids, and Youth in Worship. The pastor, choir director, choir 
members, organist or pianist, ushers, worship committee members and church 
school teachers were listed by at least 50% of the pastors as people who 
would benefit from additional training. 

The final question in the survey pertains to matters that enable people 
with handicapping conditions to participate in worship. The slight 

majority of churches now provide wheelchair access to the sanctuary 
(55.3%). Tape ministry tor shut-ins is provided by 45.5% and large print 
Bibles/devotional books by 39.6%. 

Willie S. Teague, Chairperson 



COMMITTEE ON COURTESIES AND RESOLUTIONS REPORT 

We began our 160th Session of the North Carolina Annual Conference in 
historic manner by singing "And Are We Yet Alive". This was intended as a 
paean of praise and thanksgiving that God has blessed us and enabled us to 
meet again in His name with joy. 

Often we sing it so perfunctorily that it seems more like a dirge. This 
year we gathered with hope and enthusiasm under the brotherly and 
supportive leadership of Bishop C. P. Minnick, Jr. 

We welcome with enthusiasm Bishop Minnick and his charming associate in 
ministry, Mary Ann Minnick. We anticipate with pleasure many years in 
spiritual partnership. 

Bishop Minnick has set the tone for a joyous, but genuinely Wesleyan 
Conference by the Bible Study with which we began each morning, and the 
excellent preaching of Bishop Emerson Colaw with which we climaxed each 
evening. We thank God for Bishop Colaw's challenge to the candidates for 
ordination, and his challenge to each of us to hope in God and believe in 
the possibility of a better world through the power of Christ available to 
each of us, and to all of us. 

We would pray that all of us might share the enthusiasm and the vision 
of Christ and His Church evidenced by the 15 persons ordained as deacons, 
the tt persons ordained as elders, and the one consecrated for Diaconal 
Ministry. 

In a message to the Council of Bishops, Bishop Richard B. Wilke is 
reported to have lamented that negative factors in United Methodists 
threaten continued decline, and possible death of the church unless 
positive changes are effected. He stated publicly his doubt that the 
Methodist Churches could double their membership as proposed by the General 
Conference in 1984, and perceived a growing decline. 

We are pleased to report new vitality discernable in our Conference as 
evidenced by strong reports on the renewal of the Church School and 
positive expectations of growth; plans for accelerating emphasis on Church 
Growth and membership cultivation; and the greater emphasis on the 
importance of the ministry of the laity. 

Twelve churches were recognized for the largest number of persons 
received on profession of faith. These have set an example in church 
growth and discipleship. 

The persons recognized as District Lay Persons of the year in each 
district, along with Mrs. Charles Saunders of the Elizabeth City District, 
give evidence of growing involvement in the total ministry of life and 
talents. 

We thank God for the faithful service of the 22 pastors who retired at 
this session, representing more than 600 years of ministerial service to 
the United Methodist Church. This is the largest number to have retired at 
any North Carolina Conference Annual Conference. 

In loving acknowledgement of years of service, we recognized the eleven 
ministers and seven minister's wives who have died since last we met. The 
Reverend Judi Smith challenged us to walk forward resting on Jesus' 
promise, "I will be with you always". 

We learned of exciting things our churches are doing in ministry, from 
tornado relief, to potatoe projects, to new chapel construction at 
Louisburg. New ventures in ministry by Conference agencies and local 
churches piqued out interest, and demonstrated ways we each could serve 
more effectively. 

We would be remiss should we fail to express our appreciation to Dr. 
Elton Hendricks and his associates at Methodist College for the careful 
preparation and the willing hospitality extended to each of us. We thank 
Dr. James H. Bailey and the pastors and laity of the Wilmington District 
tor serving as our host district, and doing it well. We thank Bill Norton 
and members of the press for the communication services which support the 
Conference, almost without our perception of their presence. 

In a successfull Annual Conference, which this has been, a host of 
people work around the clock that we might meet without interruption. To 

each of these persons we wish to express our appreciation, understanding 
that their service may be unnoticed by us, but is certainly known to God, 
in whose name we gather. 

Few know, or understand the hours of faithfull work that are 
represented by the labors of Mrs. Troy (Robbie) Barrett and Mrs. Maness 
(Vivian) Mitchell in the preparation of voluminous reports and the 
transcription of the Conference Minutes. To these and their helpers we 
express appreciation. 

As we part, let us take a moment to state our thanks to one or more of 
those who serve us before we rush back to our varied assignments. Let us 
give careful attention to the reading of the appointments aware that this 

287 



first appointive action of Bishop Minnick represents for him and for us a 
new beginning. Let us depart with the same enthusiasm which has been 
proclaimed regularly from this pulpit, that we may confidently expect what 
we often profess, that when reports are made at the 161st Annual Conference 
Session, we may honestly report, "These are the best reports we have ever 
made ". 

Thomas A. Collins, Chairperson 

BOARD OF DIACONAL MINISTRY 

We are excited about the new directions in Diaconal Ministry. We now 
have a CANDIDACY JOURNAL for all new diaconals going through the candidacy 
process. In order to facilitate this process four persons were trained 
this spring as spiritual mentors for those in the diaconal program. These 
persons are Martha Garrick, William Weisser, Carol Dell and Phyllis Gantz. 

This is a counterpart of the supervising pastor of those in the 
ordained ministry. 

We elected new officers for this quadrennium. Chairperson - Phyllis 
Gantz, Vice-Chairperson - Dennis Goodwin, and Secretary - Brigitte Freeman. 
The officers along with our Cabinet Representative, James C. P. Brown, and 
our Director of Ministerial Re lations/Diacona 1 Ministry Registrar, Joseph 
B. Bethea, met in Atlanta last fall in an interpretation event concerning 
the new HANDBOOK FOR THE BOARD OF DIACONAL MINISTRY. 

On March 28, a representative from the General Board was with all the 
diaconals, those considering Diaconal Ministry, and the Board of Diaconal 
Ministry, to interpret the 1984 General Conference changes in the 
DISCIPLINE and to look at future directions for Diaconal Ministry. 

We have begun consultation with the Board of Ordained Ministry 
regarding the Ministerial Education Fund. We look forward to future 

cooperation between the two boards. 

Our board recommends support from the Annual Conference for the 
amendment concerning vote for Diaconal Ministers in the Annual Conference. 
Voting status would be provided for Diaconal Ministers as is the vote for 
presidents of United Methodist Women, United Methodist Men, United 
Methodist Youth Fellowship, etc. (DISCIPLINE, Par. 35, Article 1) 

We continue to work directly with 13 church educators and 12 church 
musicians who are certified as Directors of Christian Education or Music. 
We work closely with 18 Diaconal Ministers. Their consecration to the 

office of Diaconal Ministry is the church's recognition of God's call, the 
individual's response to that call, and the authorization of such persons 
for designated service and ministry. 

We recommend the consecration to Diaconal Ministry of Brigitte Freeman 
and we welcome the following persons into our Annual Conference as Diaconal 
Minsiters: Carol Dell at the Epworth UMC in Durham from the Minnesota 
Conference, Carol Denise Conner at University UMC in Chapel Hill from the 
South Georgia Conference; Directors of Christian Education: Kimberly Perdue 
at Long Memorial UMC in Roxboro who is newly certified; and Director of 
Music: Susan Parker at St. Luke's UMC in Sanford who transferred from the 
Western North Carolina Conference.

JOINT COMMITTEE ON DISABILITY 

The Joint Committee on Disability acts as the advocate of those 
ministers in the North Carolina Conference who are forced by physical or 
emotional disability to seek temporary or permanent relief from their 
appointment. The committee is given the responsibility to study the 
problems of disability within the Conference, to provide a continuing 
personal ministry to those who are disabled, and to make recommendations to 
the appropriate agencies of the Conference for each minister seeking 
Disability Leave, including the source of their disability income. 

The following recommendations are presented to the 1985 session of the 
North Carolina Conference: 

1. The Joint Committee on Disability will make available upon request 
the necessary forms for any minister to make application for 
Disability Leave. In all cases the applications must be completed 
by the minister, the physician, and the district superintendent 
before the request for Disability Leave can be acted upon. It is 
the recommendation of the Joint Committee on Disability that such 
requests be presented before May 15 for inclusion in the committee's 
report to the Annual Conference. 

2. The Joint Committee on Disability may require psychological 
examinations when deemed necessary by the committee. These will be 
done by a physician approved by the committee, and in such a case 
the committee may share the expense of the examination in an amount 
not to exceed $100.00. 

3. The Joint Committee on Disability will study each application for 
Disability Leave submitted by ministers of the Conference to 
determine the recommendation of the minister's physician and 
district superintendent, particularly as it reflects the anticipated 
length of the minister's disability. The medical reports will be 
sent to the medical consultant of the Joint Committee on Disability 
for an interpretation of the minister's disabling conditions. The 
General Board's medical consultant will determine if the minister is 
eligible tor benefits paid through the Comprehensive Protection 
Plan. From July, 1981 to December, 1981, disability benefits were 

tpaid through new coverage under the Disability and Survivor Benefit 
Fund of the General Board of Pensions as adopted by the 1981 Session 
29 2 



or the Annual Conference. Beginning on January 1, 1982/ disability 
benefits from the General Board of Pensions were transferred to 
coverage under the new Comprehensive Protection Plan. 

4. We recommend that ministers who may not be eligible for benefits 
paid by the Comprehensive Protection may be placed on Disability 
Leave with benefits paid through the Emergency Relief Fund. The 
Joint Committee on Disability/ in reviewing the minister's 
application/ may recommend a short-term leave with benefits equal to 
(or less than) those provided by the Comprehensive Protection Plan. 
This could include a monthly benefit based on 40% of the 
Denominational Average Salary and the cost of the minister's 
coverage under the Conference insurance program of hospitalization 
and life insurance. 

5. We recommend that an interim monthly grant of $250.00 will be made 
tor the first five months a minister is granted Disability Leave 
with benefits paid through the Comprehensive Protection Plan. This 
grant would be terminated during the five months period if the 
minister began to receive Social Security benefits. 

6. The Joint Committee on Disability will review the progress of each 
minister on Disability Leave at least annually. This review will 
include both recommendations from the minister's physician and 
district superintendent as well as opportunities for continuing 
fellowship with the minister to develop further possibilities of 
assistance in his/her disabled circumstances. Those receiving aid 
from the Emergency Relief Fund will be reviewed at the end of their 
first six months of Disability Leave. 

7. We recommend that the expenses of travel/ telephone/ postage/ and 
other materials for the committee be paid from the Emergency Relief 
Fund. 

8. We recommend the following ministers to be placed on Disability 
Leave for the first time: 

A. Herbert Franklin Home 

B. A. Kimsey King, Jr. 

9. We recommend the following ministers to be continued on Disability 
Leave: 

A. Clingman Carter Capps 

B. Frederick F. Dillon (AM) 

C. Paul Wesley Evans (AM) 

D. William H. Farmer (AM) 

E. Robert Norman Knight 

F. Robert Fulton McKee 

G. Evander Parnell (AM) 

10. We recommend that ministers and congregations in the communities in 
which our disabled ministers reside seek to establish a supportive 
relationship with those on Disability Leave to maintain good 
fellowship and provide for pastoral opportunities. It is further 
recommended that housing needs and other special problems of our 
disabled ministers be considered by these congregations and 
communities in the light of the contribution made to our United 
Methodist Church by those on disability during their years of 
service. We can all become better standards of the gift of life and 
skill as we share in this ministry of caring and concern. 

Jack L. Hunter, Chairperson 

DISASTER RELIEF COMMITTEE 

This is a report of gratitude given to the people of the NC Conference 
for their gracious outpouring of love, physical labor and financial aid to 
the victims of the 1984 tornadoes and hurricane. 

Your response has been through countless individuals/ churches/ 
districts/ the NC Conference and ecumenical agencies. 

UMCOR and Conference personnel were immediately on the scene with 
experienced counsel and financial assistance. The NC Conference made 

$25,000.00 immediately available to tornado relief and $10,000.00 to 
hurricane victims. This was the first of $352,103.76 received to date for 
victims of which $50,000.00 of this came from UMCOR. 

Some 225 responses to victims have been made through your Conference 
resources. In addition we have worked through ecumenical agencies to go 
even further in our response to people in need. 

Thank you on behalf of all those who have had hope restored and love 
expressed. 

George W. Johnson, NC Conference Disaster Coordinator

COMPOSITE REPORT OF THE DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS 

I would, tirst of all, take this opportunity to express appreciation 

I and 3oy tor the leadership of our own Bishop, Carleton P. Minnick, Jr. 

■ Bishop Minnick has come into the North Carlina Annual Conference and 
brought with him a ray of sunshine. His open, loving and genuine style of 
ministry is welcomed by the North Carolina Conference. Sir, we are 

grateful for your ministry in this place. Your cabinet expresses 

| appreciation to you for the many positive aspects of your ministry to date. 
It would be a simple matter for me to stand here today and read 

! statistics to you from a prepared text. However, it seems to me that every 
statistic, every number, every individual or act of ministry is an act of 

| the laity and clergy of the North Carolina Conference as a whole. I will 
not, therefore, stand here and recite to you a long list of accomplishments 
church by church, or district by district. Rather I will indicate some 
areas in which we are strong, some areas in which we are not quite so 

, strong, and some dreams for the future. 

1. One of the strengths of the North Carolina Conference is the 
i strength of the laity. Lay folks in our Conference are yearning for more 

responsibility. No longer are they willing to sit on the sidelines and 
watch ministry take place. They are asking to be given leadership roles in 
every area of the church's ministry. Lay men and lay women as well as 
young peple across this Conference are awakening to the fact that they are 
sons and daughters of God and that He has called them too, to a special 
ministry in His name. No longer are they willing to just sit and listen, 
but now they are wanting to reach out and act and do in His name. 

We can see the results of this new accelerating eagerness among the 
laity. If a church builds a new sanctuary on the coast or a new fellowship 
hall on the other side of the Conference in another small church; or if one 
embarks on a million dollar building program in one of the larger churches, 
it is simply saying that lay people are at work. They are responding to 
the leadership within their own ranks as well as to the clergy leadership 
at that place. And so we give thanks as a church builds a new parsonage or 
struggles to construct new classrooms that are sorely needed in some place 
that is even struggling to survive. We can give thanks to God that it is 
the small and the large church that makes up the North Carolina Conference. 
After all, it was St. Paul who reminded us that we are all one body and 
that we have many members. And if one member suffers, then it effects the 
whole body. And if one member is glorified, then the whole body rejoices. 
We cannot separate the members from the body without doing traumatic things 
to the body itself. 

Of course, this means that we must lean on each other. That regardless 
of the size of the congregation, one church is just as important to the 
body as any other. So, together we go about doing the ministry of Christ. 
But the scripture tells us if one member fails, then the whole body is 
affected by it. When the ministry takes place on the coast, or in the 
central piedmont, or across the coastal plains, it is all the same body 
doing the work of Christ. 

Today we give thanks for lay men and lay women, old, young, white, 
Black, and Native American, who in their place, day by day, work to do the 
things of God as they understand them in the North Carolina Conference. 
This is one of the things that makes our Conference great! 

2. We also have a concern for evangelism. This year along in the North 

294 



Carolina Conterence - from July 1 through March 31 - there were 1070 
children baptized and brought into the church by profession of faith. 
During this same peiod of time 989 adults were brought into the church by 
profession of faith. We have all learned that it is not the minister alone 
who wins people to Christ. 1 1 is also interested lay persons who care 
about neighbors, friends and family. It is lay persons who are thinking 
more about the love of God and who give this loving care and concern for 
people. This is one of the main reasons persons are baptized and brought 
into the church. 

Oh/ we cannot minimize the role of the clergy in all of this but if we 
are honest we must never overlook the fact that concerned, dedicated lay 
people are those who often bring them to us that we may touch them. 

And too, we must never forget that evangelism is our priority whether 
it be done through missions, the church school, or whatever means. God 

speaks through many concerns and issues. 

3. The work and ministry of the youth of our Conference cannot be 
overlooked. The Conference youth rally held at White Plains UMC in Cary, 
NC which brought over 800 young people together to witness, worship and 
plan for a more involved ministry to young people in Eastern North Carolina 
surely has not been paralleled in any conference. They bring not only a 
lovely and gifted spirit to our Conference, but a caring, loving atttitude 
that is welcome. We take note of their special emphasis to the Youth 
Service Fund project. 

The work of the United Methodist Women and the United Methodist Men in 
our Conterence is beautiful to see. The women have long held out the 
beauty of serving the Lord through study and work. Their endeavors in 

outreach and mission are applaudable. Our men are showing signs of new 
life and vitality through their growth and work within the various churches 
of our Conference. How grateful we are for the dedication and work of 
these two groups of the body. 

4. We would be remiss if we did not say a word of appreciation to all 
the churches and all of the clergy in your leadership and response to the 
call for help during the tornado, hurricane and food crises appeals. What 
a grand response there was. The total given for the global food crisis 
alone was almost $200,000.00. World hunger offerings topped $51,000.00, 
while hurricane relief amounted to over $36,000.00. How grateful we are 
for this outpouring of love and concern. 

5. The clergy of our Conference are among the best to be found 
anywhere. For the most part they are the ones who seek diligently to do 
the work of Christ in the places where they live. They go where they are 
sent (most of the time), without too much complaining. Many of them are 
eagerly searching for those who need the saving touch of Christ in their 
lives. 

These clergy persons are interested in every phase of the life and 
ministry of the church. They seek diligently to raise the budgetary items 
each year because they see the need. They promote the program of their 
church and the Conterence because they realize the program is not a mandate 
handed down, but a ministry that we seek to share cooperately with the 
local church and the Conference staff. It is not unusual for these clergy 
persons to work late into the night in order that the work get done. The 

Bishop and Cabinet are not unmindful of the hard work and dedication of the 
clergy of our Conference and we give heartfelt thanks to you for your 
support and care in all the areas of the church's life and ministry. 

However, after saying all that has been said, allow me to speak 
concernig some dreams the Cabinet is dreaming these days: 

1. We are dreaming that charge conferences can become more exciting 
because our lay people and clergy persons are more excited about the 
ministries that have been entrusted to us. 

2. We are dreaming that our churches will become more open to the 
ministries which can be performed by women and ethnic clergy within our 
Conference. The dream is that hearts and pulpits will be opening to a 
greater extent to these persons who have also been called of God to do 
ministry in this place. 

3. We also have a dream that the clergy in our Conference will find 
once again a new love for one another. We dream that where there are 
feelings of envy, greed or jealousy that these may pass and we may become a 
fellowship of love and trust. It is our dream that cliques and 
self-interest groups may be a thing of the past and that we will become a 
community of people, called of God and giving our allegience to him first 
and foremost. Those of us in this Cabinet commit ourselves to the fact 
that we shall strive to treat all clergy in an equitable and fair manner, 
giving each person due consideration and that no person or group of persons 
will have undue influence on our fairness and our consideration in making 
the appointments of this Conference. 

295 



4. We dream that lay people will be understanding and tolerant as we 
seek to re-align charges which will help us to better utilize the clergy 
talent present in the Conference, and thereby to more effective ministry. 
Hopefully/ the laity will join us in seeing churches/ whether large or 
small, as being equal in importance to the needs of and in importance to 
the North Carolina Annual Conference. 

So there is a dream emerging from the Cabinet. A dream that we might 
all become brothers and sisters in the faith. That we can see each other's 
good potential and that we can work to the glory of God for each other's 
benefit. That fairness and honesty and above-board dealings will be the 
rule of the day within the Cabinet and among all of us throughout this 
Conference. 

For, you see my friends, the world cannot stand anything less than our 
very best in these times. The world calls us to attempt great things for 
God! And there is not time to waste! 

I was watching T. V. the other day. A woman was sitting on the ground. 
She was tattered and dirty and her body was thin - so thin, in fact, that 
it looked like skin draped over bones. Her eyes were hollow holes in her 
head and stared bleakly into space. In one hand she held a bowl of 
porridge, in the other a starving child. I watched as she scraped the last 
bit of porridge from the bowl and gave it to the child. Then she looked 
up. I cannot lose sight of those haunting, searching eyes. They continue 
to follow me. There is not enouugh time left to do anything but follow the 
Master and do his will. We don't have time to hurt each other, to cut each 
other nor do each other in. Jesus Christ brought us to this place, to this 
ministry. And He said, "Go into all the world and preach, and teach, and 
heal, and love. Be my body, my hands, my voice in this place". 

May God help us if we settle for less! 

J. Thomas Smith, Cabinet President 

COMMISSION ON EQUITABLE SALARIES 

By disciplinary provision and moral obligation, the Commission on 
Equitable Salaries is instructed to "support ministry in the charges of the 
Annual Conference by: 1) recommending Conference standards for ministerial 
compensation; 2) administering funds to be used in salary supplementation; 
and 3) providing counsel and advisory material on ministerial compensation 
to district superintendents and pastor -parish relations committees". 
(DISCIPLINE, Par. 722.2) 

That provision often placed the commission in a contradictory spot. 
"Assumption of the obligations of the itinerant ministry required upon 
admission to the traveling connection places upon the church a 
counterobligation to provide adequate support for the entire ministry of 
the church." (DISCIPLINE, Par. 717) "The commission shall carefully study 
the NEEDS for. . .ministerial support within the Conference and the SOURCES 
of income, and shall recommend annually to the Conference a schedule for 
minimum salaries for all. .. pastors. " (DISCIPLINE, Par. 722.3) In other 

words, ministers are required to spend considerable expense, time and 
energy in preparing for and executing ministry. Common sense recognizes 
the increased pressure upon a local church to provide an ever increasing 
salary for its minister. Churches with dwindling resources find themselves 
spending more and more on pastoral compensation and less and less on 
property, program and expansion. Clergy and laity are caught in the 
proverbial place between a rock and a hard spot. 

The commission has spent considerable time in examining the situation. 
Solutions are not included in this report. However, we do have 

recommendations whose implementation will help us move towards "fair and 
equitable salaries" for all those who "assume the obligations of the 
itinerancy", and simultaneous "fair and equitable management" of the 
resources ot the local church in ministry and mission. 

I. We recommend that, in 1985-86, the Bishop's Task Force on Charge 
Realignment make a study of all part-time appointments to determine, by 
provisions of the DISCIPLINE, Par. 201-204: 1) if they are AUTHENTIC 
churches and 2) if they can be enabled to become more AUTHENTIC churches 
through charge realignment. 

II. We recommend that there be a determination in 1985-1986 of the number 
ot full-time ministers who can be supported by the resources of this Annual 
Conference. We furtheer recommend that such information be utilized to 
detemine by February 15 of each year the number of full-time members the 
Conference can receive in any given year. We recommend that this 
information be determined by a committee of the Bishop, his Cabinet, the 
Board of Ordained Ministy and the Equitable Salary Commission. 

296 



III. Recommended Schedule o£ Minimum Salaries for 1986: 

A. Salary Schedule 

1. With respect to the ever increasing cost of living for all, we 
recommend that the minimum full-time salary level be raised by a 
percentage equal to the percentage of raise enjoyed by all 
ministers for the Conference year 1985: 

MINISTERS UNDER FULL-TIME APPOINTMENT 

(FC, AM, PM, LP) 1985 198 6 

Salary and Utilities $14,600.00 $15,600.00 

(Utilities to be specified by Charge Conference) 

STUDENTS (LP's or Conference Members) 

Salary and Utilities $ 9,900.00 $10,250.00 

(Utilities to be specified by Charge Conference) 

2. We recommend that the full-time minimum salary levels be 
adjusted annually by the percentage figure of average raises in 
the Conference for the current conference year. 

3. Guidelines affecting student pastors as adopted by previous 
Annual Conference sessions will continue to govern the use of 
equitable salary funds for student pastors. For reference, the 
DISCIPLINE, Par. 442, 717, and 722, provides the basis for our 
work. 

B. Travel Allowance: 

Although travel is reimbursed by the charge as an item of 
ministerial expense, it is expected that the charge would provide at 
least $1,800.00 for travel expense. A charge receiving equitable 
salary support may provide this $1,800.00 travel allowance, but any 
travel allowance in excess of $1,800.00 will result in a reduction 
of equitable salary support. 

C. Pension Program: 

Charges receiving Equitable Salary Fund support are responsible 
tor paying the total amount required for the Ministerial Pension 
Plan and the Comprehensive Protection Plan based on their pastor's 
total income for salary and utilities (including funds from the 
Equitable Salary Fund, Duke Endowment, and any other sources). 
IV. Principles Governing the Use of Equitable Salary Funds: 

The Pastor's salary is the responsibility of the charge; therefore, the 
charges of the North Carolina Conference should be so arranged as to be 
able to assume full salary support. The commission urges each charge 

receiving Equitable Salary funds, its pastor, and the District 
Superintendent responsible for that charge to administer the affairs of 
that charge to the end that it may move as rapidly as possible toward total 
self -suppprt. To enable the Conference, the commission, and the District 
Superintendents to carry on their cooperative efforts in understanding, in 
harmony, and for the greatest good for all concerned, the following 
principles and procedures are set forth: 

A. In considering the salary for the charge, all income, including 
salary, bonuses, and other benefits not specifically excluded, are 
included as salary in determining appropriations from the Equitable 
Salary Fund. 

B. Charges must be so arranged that no more than one-third of the total 
salary will come from the Equitable Salary Fund on the first 
application from the charge. Newly established congregations will 
be given special consideration during the first five years of their 
existence. Other charges seeking more than one-third supplement 
must provide specific information with their application, indicating 
the reasons for their inability to meet these guidelines. 
Information shall be made available to the Commission on Equitable 
Salaries and the District Superintendents regarding the term of 
Equitable Salary support, giving the date of its inception and the 
present amount of support being received by the respective charges. 

C. When the division of a charge is desired, Equitable Salary funds 
will be used only upon the recommendation of the Bishop, of the 
"Bishop's Task Force on the Division of Circuits", and the approval 
of the Cabinet. 

D. In the division of a charge in which one church seeks to become a 
station church, it is recommended that such a church shall assume 
all salary obligations and its proportionate share of all 
apportionments. 

1. 1 1 is recommended that the remainder of the charge in such a 
division assume full pastoral support and its proportionate 
share of all apportionments. In no case will the Commission on t 
Equitable Salaries provide more than one-third of the salary 
required for such a division. 
297 



2. When there is a division of a charge forming one or more student 
appointments, each newly created charge must pay two-thirds of 
the pastoral support established by the division. 

E. The Commission on Equitable Salaries further recommends that each 
charge which is receiving, or shall hereafter receive, Equitable 
Salary Fund assistance, shall reduce this aid by at least ten (10) 
percent each year until the charge has achieved full self-support in 
ten years. The Commission wants to be clear at this point that its 
intent in this recommendation is that the charge will accept in full 
whatever increases are made in the minimum salary for their pastor 
each year and receive ten (10) percent less each year in aid from 
Equitable Salary funds than granted the previous year. Newly 
established churches are expected to move toward full self-support 
during the first five years following their organization. The 
District Superintndents are to inform all charges receiving aid or 
making applications for assistance in the future of these 
requirements. 

F. Any Equitable Salary Fund supplement will be terminated immediately 
upon information that the pastor has taken full time secular 
employment. Such a charge may be reinstated at such time as its 
pastor returns to a full time or student status. Exceptions to this 
provision may be permitted only by the approval of the executive 
committee of the Commission on Equitable Salaries upon the 
recommendation of the District Superintendent of the pastor seeking 
for emergency reasons to be employed outside of his/her ministerial 
responsibi li ties. 

G. No Equitable Salary Funds will be used for associate pastors in 
other than a larger parish arrangement of churches. 

H. Equitable Salary Funds are sent to charges who have applied for 
their use to provide their pastor with the minimum salary 
established by the Annual Conference. The monthly salary supplement 
checks sent by the Conference Treasurer are to be deposited by the 
charge treasurer in the charge account and used to pay the pastor 
his/her appropriate monthly salary. The checks are not to be 

endorsed and cashed by the pastor. 

I. Churches receiving Equitable Salary Funds will conduct an annual 
financial campaign to accurately gauge the level of financial 
support the local church can reasonably expect from its members. 

J. We remind the Conference of provisions in the DISCIPLINE, Par. 717, 
which states: "Primary responsibility for the payment of pastoral 
salaries remains with individual pastoral charges." 2) "This 

schedule of minimum salaries shall be observed by the bishops and 
districts superintendents in arranging charges and making 
appointments. " 

The commission plans further consultation and study with other 
Conference agencies and resources to seek ways to more adequately provide 
for the temporal needs of our pastors and churches.

II. Financial Poiicies: 

1. The Outreach Ministries Fair Share Apportionments for 1986 shall be 
based on the formula adopted in 1979, which computes the

INSURANCE COMMITTEE 

GROUP TERM LIFE 

The following claims were paid in 1984: 

Nicolas T. Cucare $ 5,750.00 

James F. Sawyer $ 1,000.00 

Joyce V. Early $ 1,000.00 

George 0. Pappendick $23,000.00 

James H. McCallum $ 5,750.00 

Crawford B. Hicks $ 5,750.00 

Joe C. Shore $ 1,000.00 

Robert M. Graceless $ 1,000.00 

Leon W. Ross $ 1,000.00 

Willis R. Stevens $ 1,000.00 

Spouses and Children: 

Pamela Cummings $ 1,000.00 

Peggy A. Sabiston $ 1,000.00 

Since 1968 we have had a good working relationship with Fidelity & 
Guaranty Life Insurance Company. This year the Group Term program was put 
out for bids. After the bids were analyzed, the Insurance Committee 
decided to award the contract to State Farm Life Insurance Company. All of 
the benefits and operating procedures will be identical with our current 
plan with the exception of the value of the policy. The policy has been 
upgraded, effective January 1, 1985 to $15,000.00 for active ministers, 
$7,500.00 for retired ministers up to age 72, then $1,000.00 with premiums 
continuing at $103.. 00 per year. Benefits for any minister retiring prior 
to 1978 will remain at $5,000.00. 
BLUE CROSS/BLUE SHIELD 

The year's experience with Blue Cross/Blue Shield on the Administrative 
Service Only plan has proven very effective. This plan has enabled us to 
oversee costs more effectively than our previous program. The cost control 
effected with this plan enables us to maintain premium costs for 1986 at 
the same rate as 1985 and 1984; that is, no premium increase 1 The 

Insurance Committee recommends that the Conference continue with the 
present ASO plan with the Pre-Admission Certification feature. The 

committee would like to express appreciation to the members of this 
Conference for their acceptance of these changes in administrative 
procedures. 

We also would like to emphasize that with a toll free telephone number, 
and a staff person in the Treasurer's office we are now able to give better 
personal attention to claims inquiries. 

We are all aware of Medicare /Medicaid changes for our retired people. 
The reduction in Medicare benefits has made it necessary for the Blue 
Cross/Blue Shield premiums to be increased for this group. Because of this 
substantial increase, the health insurance for our retired group was put 
out tor bids, and an analysis of the bids indicated that it did not seem 
expedient to make any change in carriers at this time. Therefore, our 

retired people will continue to be covered under the Blue Cross/Blue Shield 
program with the Board of Pensions paying the premiums. 

We were instructed to consider the feasibility of adding lay employees 
at the local church to our Blue Cross/Blue Shield plan. Letters were sent 
to every charge in the Conference. Since less than 50 responses were 
received to this questionnaire, it is the opinion of the committee that 
there was insufficient interest to pursue the matter further. It is the 
recommendation of the Insurance Committee that any future consideration of 
benefits to lay employees be conducted by the Board of Laity. 

The Insurance Committee considers it a privilege to be involved in the 
care and well-being of our families. We wish you good health and long 
life.

METHODIST BOARD OF PUBLICATION, INC. 

"The North Carolina Christian Advocate" is a ministry. Its purpose is 
to strengthen ever/ other ministry in which the United Methodist Church is 
involved. The "Advocate" is a support ministry, promoting, enhancing, 
lifting up every other ministry of the church. This ministry is as varied 
as the work of the church it serves. The "Advocate" is also an associate 
minister making calls in the homes of member families every week. The 

"Advocate" carries the story of God's love to these families, telling them 
how this love is lived out in the life of our churches and inspiring them 

303 



■ be better disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

I am happy to report another good year in the ministry which the 
"Advocate" represents. Our circulation continues in the range of 20/000. 
fhis means some 60,000 or more United Methodists are reading its pages. As 
grateful as we are for this excellent list of subscribers, research has 
shown us that this circulation figure can be doubled almost over night. 
Some of our churches have discovered how to send us excellent circulation 
lists year after year. They do it by personal contact and telephone calls. 
If all of the churches were to do this, our research reveals that our 
circulation would almost immediately double. We are anxious to extend our 
circulation in order that this ministry may touch more hearts and be of 
even greater service to the church. On the basis of this research we have 
established a goal which we hope every church will adopt: that every United 
Methodist family in North Carolina receive one friendly telephone call 
about the "Advocate" every year, year after year. The caller will either 
ask the member family to renew or subscribe. No arm twisting, just an 
enthusiastic call about the church newspaper. Every member family should 
subscribe to their church's official newspaper. 

I continue to find this ministry as exciting as the day I first assumed 
the editorship. And, I continue to be exceedingly grateful for a fine staff 
without whose dedication this minsitry could not succeed. This work 

requires a great deal of overtime and often weekend work, all of which is 
cheerfully done by our two full-time staff members and our part-time 
bookkeeper without overtime pay. Mrs. Ruth Laughlin continues as our news 
editor and Mrs. Marie Fulton as our circulation manager. Mrs. Margaret 

Hinshaw is our part-time bookkeeper. 

The "Advocate" is also deeply indebted to the members of the Board of 
Publication, Inc. and its officers as well as the cabinets of our two 
conferences and our bishops for their time and efforts on its behalf. 

It should be noted that everyone who writes for the "Advocate" does so 
as a labor of love. Thus, an extra share of appreciation goes to our 
regular columnists who discharge their duties with such expertise and 
diligence. 

This year I have been traveling among our 26 districts in the state 
speaking to the ministers about this ministry of the printed word. Prior 

to this I had been traveling each year to the districts speaking primarily 
to our local church "Advocate" representatives. This next conference year 
I propose to use this time to travel among the districts seeking news and 
stories to enhance the quality of the "Advocate". This next year, 

therefore, our promotional work, as such, will be handled largely through 
the mail to the ministers and their "Advocate" representatives. 

We encourage our local church to send us their news stories and 
pictures. We do not make any charge for publishing pictures as we believe 
these add greatly to the coverage of any event. We prefer black and white 
glossy prints where possible, although some color prints reproduce very 
satisfactorily. 

Thank you for your support and your prayers. 

C. A. Simonton, Jr., Editor 

THE METHODIST PUBLISHING HOUSE 

Bishop Minnick, members and friends of the North Carolina Annual 
Conference. I t is good to see all of you and to have the opportunity to 
enjoy the warm fellowship of this session of your great Annual Conference. 
Thank you for giving us a few minutes of your very busy schedule to say a 
word or two about the operation and mission of your United Methodist 
Publishing House. 

First of all, I am happy to bring greetings from our President and 
Publisher, Dr. Robert K. Feaster, and all 1,400 employees of the publishing 
house. We want you to know that we are grateful for the opportunity to 
serve you through one of our church agencies; an agency charged with the 
responsibilities of publishing, printing and distributing resources that 
will assist you in the accomplishment of the church's mission. Thank you 
for the continued utilization of these resources. You constitute both the 
leadership of our church and the market for these products. 

Secondly, Bishop Minnick, I would like to recognize some persons here 
whose contributions at the publishing house as a writer of church school 
resources or as a good book author has helped us greatly to perform our 
task. They are Dr. F. Belton Joyner, Jr., Dr. J. Conrad Glass, Dr. Garland 
Knott, Ms. Jean Whicker, Dr. Lloyd Bailey, Sr. , Mr. Harvey Estes, Ms. Carol 
Dell, and your former Bishop, William R. Cannon. I would like those 

present to please stand. 

Thirdly, let me mention briefly two highlights of our current 

304 



operation: In response to the General Conference commitment and goal of a 
20 million member denomination by 1992, we are offering assistance to every 
new congregation and new church school; for new congregations we will 
donate supplies, hymnals, BOOK OF DISCIPLINE, and many other official forms 
that are necesssary and needed for a new congregation; and for the new 
Sunday School, a year's supply of Sunday School resources. Both offers 

will total in cost about $1,500.00. 

Also, I am happy to recognize our manager for our Cokesbury display, 
our own Miss Sue Henry. 

HYMNAL REVISION COMMITTEE 

How thrilled the three of us are to be serving on this General 
Conference committee charged with such an important task. The work goes 
well, we are on schedule although the most difficult part of our work lies 
ahead, and we anticipate with joy the production by our committee of a 
hymnal that will serve the denomination well into the next century. 

We appreciate the great response by lay and clergy across the church to 
the surveys concerning favorite hymns and the use of existing worship 
resources. Our intention is to listen carefully to our constituency so 
that the new hymnal will be both beautiful in its quality and beloved by 
its users.

BOARD OF ORDAINED MINISTRY 

ORDINATION: Ordination represents a moment of profoundest meaning and 
significance in the life of those persons called to ministry in the church. 
For the gathered community of Christians at the Ordination Service is that 
sobering moment when we are aware of standing in a continuing tradition 
going all the way back to the beginnings of the Christian Church. In 

hushed awe we are witness to an historic continuity with the original 
resurrection faith which has been an inestimable blessing to the human race 
for two thousand years. With such reverence of feeling, we are privileged 
to present the report of the Board of Ordained Ministry to the Executive 
Session of the 1985 North Carolina Annual Conference. 

Following are the recommendations of candidates to be ordained Deacons 
and Elders, for those to be received into the various categories of 
membership in the Annual Conference. 

Following are the recommendations of 15 candidates to be ordained 
Deacon, eight to be ordained Elder; for 16 persons to be elected to 
Probationary Membership, eight to be elected to full membership in the 
Annual Conference; and the recommendations for various changes or 
continuance of status in Annual Conference relationship. 

These recommendations come from ten full days of meetings held by the 
Board of Ordained Ministry since January 2 of this year, plus many other 
meetings by various committees of the Board. All those recommended for 
ordination and election to membership have been examined by the Board of 
Ordained Ministry on their call to Ordained Ministry, on Theology and 
Doctrine, and on Preaching and Worship. 

ORDINAL: The Ordination Service, scheduled for Monday evening, June 3, 
is new this year, being the alternate service developed on the initiative 
of the Council of Bishops and adopted for use by the 1980 General 
Conference. The alternative ordinal expresses sensitivity to current 
concern for inclusive, non-sexist language. Although written in 

contemporary class English, it is liturgical in character. In language and 
in action, it embodies the theology of the pastoral office. We commend it 
to you with enthusiasm as a model of what the Ordinal will be for many 
years to come. 
MISCELLANEOUS REQUIREMENTS 

The Board of Ordained Ministry would remind the Annual Conference and 
the ministerial candidates preparing for membership relationships to the 
North Carolina Conference that several actions of past Annual Conference 
sessions have established requirements that go beyond the basic step found 
in the BOOK OF DISCIPLINE. 

For Full Time Local Pastors, the Board recommended that ministers 
having completed the basic Five Year Course of Study continue to attend the 
Course of Study School in the Summer, enrolling in at least four years of 
Advanced Studies during any six year period. These courses, offered on a 
seminary level would increase the competency of our Full Time Local Pastors 
11980). 

305 



For Associate Membership, the Board recommended that the academic 
jrequirement be raised to the four-year baccalaureate degree (19 74). 

For Full Connection, the Board recommended that only those persons who 
(had completed the M. Div. degree (or its equivalent) in seminary be elected 
to Full Membership (1975). Within the M. Div degree, the Board has 
recommended that certain specific courses be included to provide the 
ministerial candidate with competence in preaching and worship as well as a 
knowledge of our United Methodist history, doctrine, and polity. The 

following specific guidelines were recommended: 

Each student must complete the following seminary level courses to be 
eligible for Full Connection and Elder's Orders (1979): 

1. A course in preaching that includes a practicum, laboratory, or 
field experience in the preparation, delivery, and evaluation of 
sermons. 

2. A course in public worship that includes the theory and practice of 
planning and leading public worship. 

3. The course requirements contained in Par. 423.3c of the 1984 BOOK 
OFDISCIPLINE be fulfilled by completing these three separate and 
distinct courses: 

a. United Methodist Polity 

b. United Methodist Theology and Doctrine 

c. A History of Methodism 

H. Langill Watson, Chairperson 



COMMITTEE ON CONTINUING EDUCATION 

The Continuing Education Committee of the Board of Ordained Ministry 
has the responsibility of developing continuing education programs that 
will enable ministers to fulfill the Disciplinary requirements. According 
to the 1984 DISCIPLINE, Par. 446.1, "Ministers shall be expected to 
continue their education throughout their careers, including 

carefully-developed personal programs of study augmented periodically by 
involvement in organized educational activities." The DISCIPLINE (Par. 447) 
further states that, "in most cases a minister's continuing education 
program should allow for leaves of absence for study at least one week each 
year and at least one month during one year of each quadrennium. Such 

leaves shall not be considered as part of the minister's vacation and shall 
be planned in consultation with the charges or other agencies to which they 
are appointed, as well as the bishop, district superintendent, and Annual 
Conference Continuing Education Committee. " 

In providing the resources to enable pastors to meet the minimum 
requirement of the DISCIPLINE, the Committee on Continuing Education has 
edited a new brochure that applies to all ministers of the North Carolina 
Annual Conference. The brochure contains information defining education, 
the role of the local church and how the pastor's continuing education can 
be financed. The brochure is printed as part of this report and follows: 

CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY IN THE NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

Rationale : A prime expectation of every minister of the North Carolina 
Annual Conference is professional growth. In recent years one of the major 
avenues through which such growth occurred has been continuing education. 
The General Conference of the United Methodist Church has recognized this 
by requiring annual participation in a continuing education program by each 
ordained minister seeking appointment. (1984 Discipline, Par. 422.1c) 

Definition : Continuing education is defined as an organized structured 
program of formal study under competent leadership with clearly defined 
goals and objectives. Here the key words are "organized," "competent 
leadership," and "clearly-defined goals and objectives." By this 

definition certain activities, though worthwhile, are not considered 
"continuing education," e.g. recreational programs, promotional meetings, 
worship services, entertainments, undirected reading and study travel 
(except for limited lecture, seminar or workshop time), and the like. 

The Conference Program : The Conference Board of Ordained Ministry, 
through the Committe on Continuing Education, performs three functions: 
(1): It sets minimum continuing education standards for ministry; (2) it 

establishes guidelines for continuing education; and (3) it seeks to insure 
their availability. 

(1) Minimum Standards . The North Carolina Conference has established 
as a minimum standard one Continuing Education Unit (CEU) to be earned by 
each minister from an approved continuing education program each year. One 
CEU is defined as ten contact hours of participation in an approved 

306 



continuing education program. 

(2) Guidelines for Continuing Education Programs . CEU's will be 
approved tor those programs sponsored by organizations which are accredited 
by (a) a regional educational agency (such as the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools), (b) a professional accrediting agency (such as the 
American Medical Association) or (c ) the Council on the Continuing 
Education Unit. It should also be noted that only those programs which 
relate directly to ministerial growth and development will be approved. 

(3) Insuring their Availability . Efforts by the Board of Ordained 
Ministry to insure the availability of continuing education programs 
include encouraging conference-related and other colleges within the 
conference bounds to offer courses for ministers, providing supplementary 
financial aid for ministers, publicizing approved programs, and identifying 
specific subject areas for need programs. 

Role of the Local Church ; In addition to the minister, the local church 
has a significant stake in the success of continuing education programs. 
The local church, therefore, has an important role to play in continuing 
education. The Pastor-Parish Relations Committee of the local church: 

(1) Confers with the pastor and the District Superintendent in the 
development of a continuing education program which will enhance the total 
ministry of the church. 

(2) Provides "leaves of absence for study at least one week each year 
and at least one month during one year of each quadrennium. " Such leaves 
of absence are not to be considered vacation time. (1984 Discipline, Par. 
447) 

(3) Recommends to the church's Finance Committee budgetary funds to be 
applied toward the minister's continuing education program. 

In providing funds for continuing education programs the Pastor-Parish 
Relations Committee should insure that only those programs which meet both 
the definitions and specific guidelines above are funded. 

Financial Aid to Ministers : Funding for continuing education is the 
combined responsibility of the participant, the congregration, the 
sponsoring institution, and the Annual Conference funds for continuing 
education are derived as a portion of Conference acceptances of the 
Ministerial Education Fund. Thus, it is not possible (nor is it desirable) 
tor the Conference to assume a major responsibli ty. 

All persons under episcopal appointment to charges, Conference staff 
positions, district superintendencies, and Conference -re la ted agencies and 
institutions are eligible for grants from conference funds provided: 

(1) The program does not lead to advancement from one level of 
Conference relationship to another nor does it lead to the acquisition of 
an advanced degree. 

(2) The program meets the definitions and Conference guidelines 
described above. 

(3) The applicant has documented his or her efforts to secure funding 
from other sources, including local church, Duke Endowment, and personal. 

(4) The application for a grant is filed on the appropriate form which 
furnishes complete information about the event and bears the signatures of 
the applicant, the Pastor-Parish Relations chairperson, and the District 
Superintendent. 

In providing grants, the Conference will place limits as follows: 
11) The maximum grant to an individual applicant over one Conference 
year is $300.00. 

(2) For a one-week event $150.00 will be the maximum grant; for a 
two-week event, $300.00. 

(3) The event must involve some definite measure of intensive study by 
the participant and offer at least one Continuing Education Unit. 

14) The Conference may fund no more than 75 percent of the cost of any 
continuing education event. 

Monitoring Continuing Education Units : 

( 1) The District Superintendent, in annual consultation, may suggest 
to the minister the area of continuing education he or she should take to 
facilitate his or her professional growth. The pastor's annual Continuing 
Education Report will be given to the District Superintendent at the annual 
consultation. 

(2) Ministers shall have the responsibility for securing from the 
institution granting continuing education credit a record of earned credit 
and providing a copy of this record to his or her District Superintendent. 

(3) The District Superintendent will send the pastor's continuing 
education report to the Director of Ministerial Relations on an annual 
basis so that this report can be placed in the pastor's permanent file (and 
possibly on computer). This information will include course title and 
continuing education credits. 

(4) It is the responsibility of each minister to determine, in 

307 



consultation with the Committee on Continuing Education, if a proposed 
^program meets the criteria prior to participation and funding.

MINISTERIAL EDUCATION FOND COMMITTEE 

MINISTERIAL EDUCATION FUND ASSISTANCE: The Ministerial Education Fund 
remains the major source of support for theological education in The United 
Methodist Church for the 1981-1984 quadrennium. When the local church 
remits the Ministerial Education Fund to the Conference treasurer, it is 
divided two ways. The larger portion (75%) is sent to the Division of 
Higher Education and Ministry in Nashville to be divided among the United 
Methodist seminaries tor their operating expenses and for scholarship help 
to minority and special students. The remaining 25% portion is retained by 
the Board of Ordained Ministry in the North Carolina Conference. 

The Board of Ordained Ministry may use its funds to provide scholarship 
assistance for ministerial education, for continuing education, and for 
recruitment. However, the amount of funds available during the past few 
years and the number of students seeking to prepare for ordained ministry 
has made necessary the use of almost all of the funds for scholarships for 
ministerial candidates.

the actual educational cost (tuition, and fees and an annual $300.00 book 
allowance). For students at Duke Divinity School this was $1,547.00 for 
full-time students (four courses) and $1,187.00 for student pastors (three 
courses) annually. 

The need to continue our support of the Ministerial Education Fund at 
the present level, and to increase where possible, is borne out by these 
statistics of our present group of students preparing for ministry and the 
need to move further into continuing education opportunities for the 
ministers already in the field.

PASTORAL CARE COMMITTEE 

The Pastoral Care Committee serves the North Carolina Conference both 
as a sensitive listener to the needs of clergy and their families and as an 
agent for response to these needs. At the present time, the primary 

function of the committee is in providing financial assistance clergy 
and/or their families for counseling and therapy and for participation in 
programs of personal growth and marriage and family enrichment. 

As this quadrennium begins, a broadened purpose and function is under 
study. Critical areas of concern that the committee hopes to make 
meaningful responses to include: 

- attrition of clergy from ordained ministry; 

- conflict between role expectations and personal 

308 



identity for clergy and clergy spouses; 

- issues regarding parsonage life; 

- the whole health of clergy, physical and emotional/ 
and programs of preventive and recreational care; 
and, 

- the itinerancy and working clergy spouses.

PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTING/ EVALUATION COMMITTEE 

Psychological Testing and Evaluation is a phy chologi cal assessment 
program of the Board of Ordained Ministry. It serves two basic purposes: 
Nurture, and selection. The nurture aspect is for the benefit of the 
candidate seeking Conference membership. The selection aspect is for the 
benefit of the Conference. Nurture is accomplished when the phychological 
assessment provides the candidate information pertinent to the achievement 
to the achievement and maintenance of maxiumum phychological adjustment in 
professional ministry by identifying specific areas of potential problems 
and offering concrete suggestions to remedy them. Selection is 

accomplished when the assessment program provides early detection of 
unacceptable behavior patterns which could jeopardize effective ministry. 

The testing program uses personality, interest, and religious interest 
inventories to measure fitness and competency for ministry. This 

Conference year a new approach was taken in the testing arrangements. All 
candidates (23 individuals) for Conference membership were tested in a 
group setting by the staff of The Career and Personal Counseling Center. 
In due time each candidate went to the center, located on the campus of St. 
Andrews Presbyterian College, for the private evaluation of the testing 
results. This new approach proved to be a vital convenience for the 
candidates especially those who were students in seminary. 

There is a recommendation by the General Board of Ordained Ministry 
that each Conference consider beginning the psychological testing and 
evaluation at the first stage (Candidacy stage) in the steps into the 
Ordained Ministry. This stage is typified when men and women declare their 
interest and desire to explore possibilities for ministry. The Committee 
on Psychological Testing and Evaluation will investigate and discuss this 
recommendation and render a report to the Board of Ordained Ministry during 
the 1985-1986 Conference year.

NORTH CAROLINA PASTORS' SCHOOL 

The North Carolina Pastors' School and Duke University Divinity School 
Convocation will be held November 4-6, 1985. Dr. JdYin Deschner of Perkins 
School of Theology will be the Gray Lecturer and Dean Dennis Campbell of 
Duke Divinity School will give the Hickman Lectures. Dr. Arie Brouwer, 

general secretary of the National Council of Churches of Christ, will be 
the keynote speaker, and the Bishop's C. P. Minnick, Jr. and Bevel Jones 
have been invited to be the Convocation Preachers. Several seminaries, 

carrying one continuing education unit, will be offered to participants. 

This event grows in numbers and esteem each succeeding year and early 
registration becomes a necessity for those who wish to take the seminars. 
The 1984 school and convocation was highlighted by Fred Craddock's lectures 
on preaching and nine seminars taught by professors from Duke and other 
Christian agencies. We join with our colleagues from the Western North 
Carolina Conference and the leaders of The Divinity School in looking 
forward eagerly to the 1985 gathering. 

The following nominations are presented for membership on the Board of 
Managers from the North Carolina Conference: 

Class of 1986 - F. Owen Fitzgerald, Jr., Edith Gleaves 

Class of 1987 - Ernest R. Porter, H. Langill Watson 

Class of 1988 - G. Robert McKenzie, Jr., Charles M. Smith

B. Berry O. Barbour, two and one-half years of credit for 6/2/66 to 
12/31/68. 

REPORT B - RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE PENSION PROGRAM 

I. Past Service Liability 

A. Past service will continue to be paid on the defined benefit concept 
(per service year rate) for all service rendered to the North 
Carolina Conference through December 31, 1981. This plan is 
expected to continue until all persons with past service benefits 
and their serviving spouses have died. 

B. Goal of defined benefits (per service year rate) has been defined in 
the BOOK OF DISCIPLINE for many years as 1% of the Conference 
Average Salary. The 1985 CAS for the North Carolina Conference is 
$19,100.00. 



C. The current rate is $180.00 per service year. Participation in the 
new Ministerial Pension Plan required that an Annual Conference 
continue to increase its past service rate as the Conference Average 
Salary increases, to at least 0.9% of the CAS to continue to 
participate fully in the new pension program. We propose that the 
past service rate beginning July 1, 1985 be increased to $195.00 per 
service year and that per service rate for 1986 be established at 
$210.00 per service year, and that further increases will be 
312 



presented to the Annual Conferences of the future as the Conference 
Average Salary increases. 

D. To fund the past service rate with the General Board of Pensions 
will require an annual payment of $1,238,267.00 in 1985 and 
$1,410,000.00 in 1986. 

E. 1985 Operating Budget (Revised) : 

This increase cost of past service is off-set by earnings from 
the Calvin Little Estate and Methodist Pension Fund Crusade and does 
not increase the askings in Outreach Ministries. 

Annual Cost tor Past Service Liability ($180.00) $1,238,267.00 

Insurance - Group Health 260,000.00 

Group Life 3,000.00 

Pension costs for ministers in Conference appointments 130,000.00 

Board of Pensions administration 7,500.00 

Pension Support Fund + 15,000.00 

$1,653,767.00

Methodist Foundation earnings $700,000.00 

Pension Reserve Fund (Little Est.) + 48 ,819 .00 

$748,819.00 748,819.00 

Being raised in 1984 to be spent in 1985 $ 904,948.00 

F. 1986 Operating Budget (Revised): 

Annual Cost for Past Service Liability ($210.00 rate) $1,410,000.00 
Insurance - Group Health 260,000.00 

Group Life 3 ,000.00

$875,000.00 875,000.00 

Amount to be raised in 1985 for use in 1986 $ 960,500.00 

G. To increase any past service rate will always involve accepting an 
unfunded liability that must be satisfied by either a single cash 
payment, a series of planned payments, or a combination of both. 

II. Ministerial Pension Plan (MPP) 

Guidelines for the Ministerial Pension Plan and the Comprehensive 
Protection Plan are contained in the 1983 and 1984 JOURNAL OF THE NORTH 
CAROLINA CONFERENCE. Thus we call to your attention only those 
guidelines that are relevant to these programs. 

A. Service on and atter January 1, 1982 will be funded on a new 
concept, called a defined contribution plan. This plan is basically 
deferred salary, and creates no unfunded liability because it builds 
an account of funds for a specific minister as his/her salary is 

paid. 

B. Funding is based on a percentage of Plan Compensation. Plan 
Compensation is calculated as follows: 

Take Cash Income (salary plus utilities) i.e. $15,000.00 and 

Add Housing Allowance (20% of cash income) + 3 ,000 .00 and 

Plan Compensation will be $18,000.00 

1. No travel funding is ever used in Plan Compensation calculations 
as this is considered by the General Board of Pensions to be an 
item of local expense. 

2. The utility allowance of the pastor is not considered by the 
General Board of Pensions to be more than 10% of the total Cash 
Income, regardless of the amount set at the Charge Conference. 

3. The funding formula will not include an amount for utilities. 
This means that only 90% of the Cash Income will be the base for 
Plan Compensation. 

313 



4. Where a cash Housing Allowance is provided as a part of the 
compensation for an appointment or where the pastor chooses to 
live in housing other than the parsonage provided by the charge, 
the housing Allowance in the Plan Compensation calculation shall 
be considered 20% of the Cash Income, regardless of the amount 
of the cash Housing Allowance. 

C. The Ministerial Pension Plan contribution from the local church is 
to be paid monthly to the Conference Treasurer for transmission to 
the General Board of Pensions. 

D. These contributions are placed in the individual minister's Church 
Account to be available for benefits when the minister becomes 
eligible for payment in the retired relationship. The following 
options are available at that time: 

1. A life annuity with 100% to the surviving contingent annuitant. 

2. A life annuity with 75% to the surviving contingent annuitant. 

3. A life annuity with 50% to the surviving contingent annuitant. 

4. A single-life annuity with ten years certain. 

5. A single-life annuity with five years certain. 

6. A single-life, (no refund) annuity. 

E. Each minister who is eligible for benefits will be required to 
designate beneficiaries for the benefits he/she is qualified to 
receive. 

F. We recommend that the following schedule of participation in the 
Ministerial Pension Plan be adopted and implemented to bring the 
North Carolina Conference participants into the intended structure 
of the Ministerial Pension Plan: 

YEAR 
198 2 
1983 
198 4 
1985 
1986 
1987 
1988 
1989 
1990 
*Steps ina: 

III .Comprehensive Protection Plan (CPP) 

A. This part of the program contains provisions for a death benefit, 
disability income, and funding for the peerage portion of the 
ministerial Pensin Plan. In addition to the provisions of a death 
benefit for either the spouse of the surviving spouse of a minister, 
the Comprehensive Plan also includes educational benefits for the 
children of a deceased minister. This part of the new plan is only 
available to those ministers serving full time. 

1. Death benefits provide 150% of the denominational average salary 
as the benefit paid on the death of an active minister through 
age 46, dropping on a graduated basis to 105% at age 55, 70% at 
age 62, and 20% upon retirement at any age. 

2. Disability payments are based on 40% of the Denominational 
Average Salary in effect at the time the minister is placed on 
disability. 

3. The peerage program provides for a contribution from the 
Comprehensive Protection Plan to the minister's Church Account 
of a sufficient amount to provide the minister with a total 
contribution for the year based on the Denominational Average 
Compensation. This would provide every minister in the North 
Carolina Conference under appointment to a full time charge 
(Conference Member and Local Pastor) with an annual Church 
Account accumulation of 9% of Plan Compensation based on the 
Denominational Average Compensation. 

B. The cost of the Comprehensive Protection Plan is a 4.1% contribution

of actual Plan Compensation. This minister will be required to pay 
1.0% of the 4.1% as provided in the Comprehensive Protection Plan, 
and the church or charge will pay the additional 3.1%. 

Minister's Personal Account 

A. The pension program provides that a minister who participates in the 
Ministerial Pension Plan shall contribute 3% of actual Plan 
Compensation annually to his/her Personal Account. 

B. These funds would be available in a lump sum or in a variety of 
other options when the minister reaches age 60, or may be left to 
accumulate as an additional amount for monthly pension benefits. 

C. The minister's personal account contributions can be made in one of 
three ways: 

1. A tax-deterred annuity contribution. This option requires that 
the amount of the monthly contribution to the minister's 
personal account be withheld from his/her salary by the charge 
treasurer according to a signed agreement between the minister 
and the charge, and sent to the General Board of Pensions by the 
charge treasurer. The amount withheld should not be declared as 
income by the minister at the end of the year for either income 
tax or self -employment (Social Security) tax. The General Board 
of Pensions should be notified by the minister that he/she 
desires the contributions to be tax-deferred, and the monthly 
billing card should reflect that type of contribution. 

2. A personal tax -deductible contribution. This option allows the 
minister to send the monthly contribution from funds received 
from the charge treasurer. The General Board of Pensions 
presumes this type of contribution to be the minister's 
preference unless they are notified otherwise. This type of 
contribution can be deducted from the minister's income for 
income tax purposes on the line for Individual Retirement 
Account (IRA) contributions. 

3. A personal tax-paid contribution. This option also allows the 
minister to send the monthly contribution from funds received 
from the charge treasurer, but he/she must inform the General 
Board of Pensions that the contributions are so intended. The 
advantage of this type of contribution is that you may remove 
all such contributions at a later time without having to pay 
further taxes. Interest earned by such contributions is, 
however, taxable. 

Implementation of the Program 

The benefit program adopted by your Conference Board of Pensions 
seeks to provide a wider range of support for the minister's family 
Lhrough death benefits for every member of the family, disability 
income for the minister in time of great stress, educational benefits 
for children of deceased ministers, minimum annuity benefits for 
surviving spouses, and the build-up of contributions to the Church 
Account of these ministers whose compensation is below the 
Denominational Average Salary. 

A. Cost of the past service pension program: 

Annual Cost for Past Service Liability 

($225.00 rate projected for 1987) $1,600,000.00 

Insurance Program - Group Health 260,000.00 

Group Life 3,000.00 

Pension costs for ministers in Conference appointments 150,000.00 

Board of Pensions administration 7,500.00 

Pension Support Fund + 15 ,000.00 

$2,035,500.00 
Less: 

Methodist Foundation earnings $ 750,000.00 
Pension Reserve Fund + 290,500.00 

$1,040,500.00 - 1 ,040,500.00 

Amount to be raised in 1986 for use in 1987 $ 995,000.00 

The budget request for 1986 is less than that raised in 1982.

B. Costs of the Ministerial Pension Plan/Comprehensive Protection Plan 
will be borne by the local charge as an item of ministerial support 
according to the Plan Compensation of the minister and the category 
of the charge. 

Full Time (Conference Member/Local Pastor) - 13.4% of Plan 

Compensation 
Student (Conference Member/Local Pastor) - 10.0% of Plan 

Compensation 
Less Than Full Time (Conference Member/Local pastor) - 10.0% of 

salary 
Interim or Retired Supply - no pension responsibility 

C. We propose that the past service rate beginning July 1, 1985, be 
increased to $195.00 per service year, that beginning January 1, 
1986, per service rate be increased to $210.00 per service year, and 
beginning January 1, 1987, the per service rate be increased to 

$225.00. 

D. The minister will make regular payments to the Conference Treasurer 
for his/her portion (1%) of the Comprehensive Protection plan. 

E. The minister will make regular payments to the General Board of 
Pensions for his/her Personal Account (3%). 

F. Summary 

It is obvious that there has been a great improvement on the 
benefits currently being received by our retired families. The per 
service year rate has increased from $82.00 per service year in 1978 
to $195.00 beginning July 1, 1985. A minister retiring this year 
with forty years of pension credit will receive a monthly benefit of 
$650.00, compared with $273.33 in 1978. This is a 138% increase in 
a seven year period! 

H. Resolution from the 1984 Conference 

I move, following both our own past practice of providing equal 
pensions tor all ministerial members and following the current practice 
under the new pension program of the large majority of another annual 
conferences in our church, that the North Carolina Conference change 
our procedure so that all ministerial members will have equal pensions 
based on service years when they retire. 

The 1984 General Conference made changes in the rules and 
regulations so that all deferred salary benefits must be based on the 
minister's plan compensation and paid out on the basis of the 
minister's actuarial life expectation. No provision is now made to 
equalize benefits under the Ministerial Pension Plan. 

/II .Conclusion 

Our constant aim is to provide our retired families with their needs 
for an adequate income to purchase essentials for living as well as to 
insure adequate care in case of illness. To these ends our 

recommendations are directed, and their satisfaction is found in the 
acceptance of the North Carolina Conference and its membership. 

REPORT C - HOUSING EXCLUSION ALLOWANCE 

Resolution Relating to Rental/Housing Allowances for Retired or 
Disabled Ministers of this Conference: 

WHEREAS, the religious denomination known as the United Methodist 
Church has and functions through ministers of the gospel who are duly 
ordained or licensed; and 

WHEREAS, the practice of the United Methodist Church is to provide a 
parsonage or a rental allowance as part of the gross compensation for each 
of its active ordained or licensed ministers; and 

WHEREAS, pensions paid to retired ordained or licensed ministers of the 
United Methodist Church are considered as deferred compensation and are 
paid to said retired ordained or licensed ministers in consideration of 
previous, active service, and disability benefits are considered payments 
in lieu of compensation for active service; and 

WHEREAS, the Internal Revenue Service has recognized that the North 
Carolina Annual Conference is the appropriate organization to designate a 
housing/rental allowance for retired ordained or licensed ministers who are 
members of this Conference; and 

WHEREAS, the disabled minister has the same legal relationship to an 

316 



Annual Conference as does the retired minister and, thus, this Annual 
Conference is also the appropriate organization to designate a 
housing/rental allowance for a disabled ordained or licensed minister who 
is a member of this Conference. 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: 

1. An amount equal to 100% of the pension payments received by a retired 
minister (including amounts received in this respect from the Duke 
Endowment), or 100% of the disability benefit payments received by a 
disabled minister, during the year of 1985-1986 be and is hereby designated 
as a rental/housing allowance respectively for each retired or disabled 
ordained or licensed minister of the United Methodist Church who is or was 
a member of the North Carolina Annual Conference at the time of his or her 
retirement or disability; 

2. The pension or disability payment to which this rental/housing 
allowance applies shall be the pension or disability payment resulting from 
ail service of such retired or disabled ordained or licensed minister from 
all employment by any local church, Annual Conference, General Agency, or 
institution of the United Methodist Church or of any former denomination 
that is now a part of the United Methodist Church, or from any other 
employer who employed the minister to perform services related to the 
ministry and who elected to make contributions to the pension or benefit 
funds of the United Methodist Church for such retired minister's pension or 
disabled minister's benefits. 

NOTE: The rental/housing allowance which may be excluded from a minister's 
gross income is limited to the lesser of (1) the amount of the 
rental/housing allowance designated by the minister's employer or other 
appropriate body, (2) the amount actually expended by the minister to 
provide his or her housing, or (3) the legally-determined fair rental value 
of the parsonage or other housing provided. As specified in Rev. Rul. 
71-280, 1971 C.B. 92, "the only amount that will qualify for exclusion 
under section 107(2) of the Code as 'rental allowance' is an amount equal 
to the fair rental value of the home, including furnishings and 
appurtenances such as a garage, plus the cost of utilities." Beginning in 
1984, there is no longer a sick pay or disbility income exclusion available 
with respect to disability benefit payments. Therefore, the full amount of 
disability benefit payments will be taxable income to the recipient 
beginning in 1984. 

REPORT D - CALVIN M. LITTLE ESTATE 

The Board of Pensions calls attention to the substantial per service 
year rate increase which has been made with the last couple of years. The 
rates have changed form §164.00 per service year for 1983 to a recommended 
per service year rate of $225.00 for 1987. This increase has come about 
from tunas other than through the Annual Conference apportionments in 
Outreach Ministry asking. 

Among these funds are the monies received in 1983 and 1984 through the 
Calvin M. Little Estate. The Calvin Little Estate gave a total of 

$140,890.79 to the Board of Pensions. Every minister who has years of 
pension service in which the per service year rate is a fact is the 
be net lciary . 

We of the Board of Pensions are grateful to those who were responsible 
tor the Calvin M. Little grant for pension funds. We strongly recommend 
ministers and lay persons use thier influence wherever possible to lead 
others in making bequests or grants that the pension benefits may continue 
to increase.
